Turning Point USA’s annual Southwest Regional Conference will be held April 16 & 17, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ. Students who attend this two-day conference will hear from guest speakers, participate in customized activist training sessions, and network with 200+ students who are actively involved in the conservative movement in the Southwestern region. Following a TPUSA conference, these activists return to their campuses more energized than ever and with the proper tools and training on how to defend conservatism on their campus.

This can’t-miss conference is a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills, enhance your activism techniques, receive training, and get connected with resources and opportunities offered by TPUSA and its partner organizations.
