This month’s Conservative Police Action Conference, CPAC 2019, is aiming to set the tone for the 2020 presidential election by answering the question of “What Makes America Great,” building on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign to Make America Great Again.
The gathering—Feb. 27–March 2 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center—is bracing for a record 10,000 attendees, the organizers say, adding that they’ve seen signs of increased activism after the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Among the topics on this year’s agenda are gun rights, faith, free markets, national security and criminal justice reform. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will top the list of speakers.
