Like many other large scale events, the annual Western Conservative Summit is virtual this year. This significant event in past decades has been the largest in-person gathering of conservatives in the western states. This year it could pull in a record audience, live audience or not. The online event on Saturday features 22 high-profile, outspoken conservatives — including Ben Shapiro, Dennis Prager, Charlie Kirk, Richard Grenell, Mike Huckabee and Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Louie Gohmert. The summit also includes workshops from both the Heritage Foundation and the Judicial Crisis Networks, plus a speech contest featuring young conservatives. For the first time in its 30-year history, the event is free, but requires registration.
It also marks the world premiere of “America! America! God Shed his Grace on Thee,” a documentary hosted by conservative actor and filmmaker Nick Searcy that emphasizes the importance of God and the Bible in shaping America.
The film features exclusive commentary from Mr. Shapiro, Mr. Cruz and Mr. Prager, along with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, among many others.
