ACU Releases 40th Anniversary CPAC Video

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced the premiere of the 40th anniversary video for this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Under the theme, “America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives; New Challenges, Timeless Principles,” CPAC attendees will be offered the intellectual and training tools they need to combat the liberal agenda.

“Our video for this year’s conference projects the energy and excitement CPAC has always provided our attendees for the last 40 years,” said Chairman Al Cardenas. “It is important to not only honor past conservative giants who have had an incredible impact on the movement, but to furthermore inspire a new, younger generation of future activists and leaders.”
