Join us as we continue to make history at the largest and most unique events our movement has ever seen!” TPUSA’s website states.
What is Turning Point USA?
Turning Point USA is described as a “student movement for freedom,” where student activists on campuses around the country mobilize to educate their peers on the meaning of free markets and limited government.
Turning Point USA (TPUSA), or Turning Point, is also described as an American nonprofit organization that advocates in high school, college, university and campuses for conservative values. The organization was founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk and Bill Montgomery. TPUSA’s sister organizations include Turning Point Endowment, Turning Point Action, Students for Trump, and Turning Point Faith. The group also works with PragerU. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, TPUSA “is now the dominant force in campus conservatism.”
The organization is known for its Professor Watchlist, a site that claims to uncover professors that TPUSA says “discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom”. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, TPUSA has attempted to influence student government elections to “combat liberalism on college and university campuses.” The School Board Watchlist website was started by TPUSA in 2021. The names and photos of school board members who have adopted mask requirements or anti-racist curricula are published by it.
TPUSA annually hosts several conferences on various topics throughout the year, such as the Teen Student Action Summit, Young Women’s Leadership Summit, Young Black Leadership Summit, Americafest, and Young Latino Leadership Summit is hosted by TPUSA annually. The organizations which fund it are conservative donors and foundations, and Republican Party politicians as well.
