The Texas Tribune Festival

The Texas Tribune Festival is a three-day event for people who are passionate about the issues that affect all Texans. #TribFest18 will include discussions on the impact of President Drumpf’s first two years; what Texas’ changing demographics mean for everyday Texans; and the 2018 – and even 2020 – elections; plus discussions of the most pressing issues in public and higher education, criminal justice, immigration, health care, energy, the environment and transportation.

High-profile speakers from 2017 included important newsmakers such as U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Cecile Richards, outgoing president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund; Beto O’Rourke, Texas congressman and candidate for U.S. Senate; U.S. Reps. Will Hurd, R-Helotes, and Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio; Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush; Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath; the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman; NPR’s Mara Liasson; MSNBC’s Katy Tur; and Larry Wilmore, comedian and host of the “Black on the Air” Podcast.
