Join us for a conversation with Justin Danhof, the conservative movement’s foremost shareholder activist. Were you surprised when Exxon shareholders voted to appoint three left-wing climate change activists to its board of directors earlier this year? Danhof and his team weren’t. He will unpack how activist investors have teamed up with woke capital on Wall Street to rig the corporate proxy ballot and explain what that means for the future of American energy production. We will also explore how the Biden Administration and regulatory state are working in concert with these left-wing investment houses to throttle the oil and natural gas industries. Woke capital, activist investors, and the Biden regulatory agenda form a three-headed hydra seeking to cancel traditional energy. Full stop. Danhof will talk about the tools needed to slay that three-headed beast.
