The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Liz Cheney served as the U.S. representative for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2017 to 2023. She chaired the House Republican Conference, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership, from 2019 to 2021. She served as the Vice Chair of the Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.
Decades from now, scholars, historians, and students will look to the events of January 6, 2021, as pivotal in American history — events that raise the question of whether the founding principles of our nation and our Constitution will continue to stand. Cheney had a front-row seat to the day's events and directly influenced how the American public understood them. Her experience is reflected in her new book, Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning. In 2022, Cheney, along with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, received the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library’s prestigious Profile in Courage Award, with a commendation for her “consistent and courageous voice in defense of democracy.”
