CPAC 2022 – Orlando, Florida
As a presenting sponsor of CPAC 2022, the Korean Conservative Political Action Conference (KCPAC) successfully furthered its mission to educate and inform the American public about Korean Peninsula affairs and the risks facing the US-ROK alliance – particularly from the ill-conceived H.R. 3446 (Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act).
Our exhibit booth at CPAC Central was busy fielding inquiries from many interested attendees while sharing literature on Korean affairs and H.R. 3446 and the End of War declaration, and also gathering signatures for our petition against the bill.
We also held a standing-room-only panel discussion on the threat to the US-South Korea alliance and the risk of war posed by H.R. 3446 and an ‘End of War’ declaration. Well-known Asian Affairs commentator, Gordon Chang moderated the panel – including experts Senator Bill Hagerty, Ambassador Morse Tan, Dr. Sung-yoon Lee, and KCPAC President Grant Newsham.
As part of our outreach efforts, KCPAC also held fruitful sidebar meetings with influential people including former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Senator Ted Cruz and a number of Congress members, and a member of the European Parliament.
KCPAC staff and guests conducted a number of media interviews and were also featured on the main stage of the conference’s general session. We took those opportunities to highlight how authoritarian-socialist forces in China and North Korea – and even within the South Korean body politic are attempting to push South Korea away from its American ally.
CPAC was a most productive event for promoting KCPAC’s educational mission and ensuring that conservative voices are heard and that the Korean Peninsula gets the attention it deserves.
