Author, Actress and Fox News Pundit Stacey Dash Confirmed to Speak at CPAC 2016


February 17, 2016

WASHINGTON DC —”One of the best parts of CPAC is how up close activists can get to TV personalities, who care just as passionately about the direction our country is going. Stacey is a prime example of how actors have an important voice in speaking up for conservative values,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.

“As a female, black, Hollywood actress, I have people from all angles constantly telling me I’m supposed to be a liberal. But I’ve never been the type to fall in line simply because someone tells me that’s the way it’s ‘supposed’ to be,” said Dash. “I didn’t study politics and I’ve never read Edmund Burke, but I have seen—over and over and over—the way liberal policies and conservative principles play out in the real, unforgiving world, and I know that conservative principles work in everyday life. I’m thrilled and honored to be among friends at CPAC this year!”

Stacey Dash joined FOX News Channel in 2014 and currently serves as a contributor, offering cultural analysis and commentary across various daytime and prime-time programs.

Most recently, Dash sparked controversy during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Twitter account and subsequently endured heavy criticism for supporting a conservative nominee. Since the election, Dash has continued to utilize her unique positioning as a well-known actress to voice her opinions and encourage discussion on topics ranging from pop culture to national news and politics across all media platforms.

In addition to her cultural and political activism, Dash leads a notable acting career that has spanned more than 20 years. She has appeared in numerous films and television series, including her breakout role as “Dionne” in the 1995 hit movie “Clueless,” as well as roles in “Renaissance Man,” “Mo’ Money,” and “View from the Top,” among others. Her new book “There Goes My Social Life” is set to be published June 6, 2016.

CPAC 2016 will be held March 2-5 at the Gaylord Hotel National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. The theme, “Our Time is Now” is taken from a speech by Ronald Reagan.

The ACU would like to extend a special thanks to this year’s CPAC sponsors The National Rifle Association (NRA), The Heritage Foundation, One America News Network (OANN), The Daily Signal, Townhall Media, and Cobalt Media Group.
