2017 American Renaissance Conference

Turning the Tide

At the 2015 American Renaissance conference, Peter Brimelow predicted it might take “only one speech” to awaken the Historic American Nation to its demographic plight. At the 2016 conference, he made a new prediction: It might take “only one election.” Was Donald Trump’s victory the turning point we’ve been hoping for?

Attendees gathered July 28–30 near Nashville, TN, for a weekend of  candor, fellowship, and top-notch speakers, as we celebrated the shifting political tides and discussed the way forward for White America and the Western World. The conference write up can be found here.
