Advisory: Independent Women’s Forum Hosting Culture of Alarmism Panel at CPAC
Independent Women’s Forum Hosting Culture of Alarmism Panel at CPAC
“How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love Plastic Water Bottles, Fracking, Genetically Modified Food & Big Gulp Sodas”
Announcing this panel discussion, IWF Culture of Alarmism Project Director Julie Gunlock said, “We are thrilled to work with the ACU to host this exciting panel. Americans are bombarded each day with alarmist messages, hyped by the media about how everyday products threaten their health and safety. Our organization has launched the Culture of Alarmism project to combat the dangerous myths that are being spread, to fight unnecessary regulations that hurt the free market and to educate women and conservative activists about how they can fight back.”
“How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love Plastic Water Bottles, Fracking, Genetically Modified Food & Big Gulp Sodas” will be moderated by IWF Executive Director Sabrina Schaeffer. The panel will be comprised of the following individuals:
Julie Gunlock | Director, Culture of Alarmism Project of the Independent Women’s Forum
Angela Logomasini | Senior Fellow, Competitive Enterprise Institute
Jillian Kay Melchior | Thomas L. Rhodes Fellow, Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
Jeff Stier | Senior Fellow, National Center for Public Policy Research
In conjunction with this discussion event, IWF is launching a new website that highlights some of the most disturbing trends of the alarmist culture and the growing nanny state. A must-click for conservative activists and media, www.CultureofAlarmism.org will go live this week.
Americans are bombarded with messages about how everyday products threaten their health and the health of their children. The media hypes the findings from scientifically-dubious studies; politicians and government regulators seize on them to promote regulations that expand their power and so that they can reassure the public they are doing something to protect Americans. IWF is leading the fight against this Culture of Alarmism. To learn more about this project, please go to www.CultureofAlarmism.org.
Independent Women's Forum is a non-partisan, 501(c)(3) research and educational institution dedicated to expanding the conservative coalition, both by increasing the number of women who understand and value the benefits of limited government, personal liberty, and free markets, and by countering those who seek to ever expand government in the name of protecting women.
