Event Announcement
What’s Ahead for U.S. Under One-Party Rule: California Provides a Peek
Independent Conversation
Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Independent Institute Executive Director Dr. Graham H. Walker and Independent Senior Vice President Mary L.G. Theroux discuss her recent article, "2024: California Provides a Peek at What’s Ahead for U.S. Under One-Party Rule." What can we expect? Will this mean the end of independent contracting? What about defunding the police? Will California's ethnic studies curriculum become a national mandate?

The Independent Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan, public-policy research and educational organization that shapes ideas into profound and lasting impact through publications, conferences, and multi-media programs. Our mission is to boldly advance peaceful, prosperous, and free societies grounded in a commitment to human worth and dignity.
