Chris Rufo, a far-right activist and journalist is speaking today at University of Colorado Boulder’s Bruce D. Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization.

The Benson Center has a history of bringing far-right figures to campus. In 2020 the Center hired John Eastman who was later accused of conspiring with Former American President Donald Trump to plan the January 6th attack on the US Capitol while working at the Benson Center.

Chris Rufo made national headlines this month for spearheading the campaign to unseat Harvard’s first Black President, Claudine Gay. Many credit Rufo for crafting the GOP campaign against “critical race theory.” Rufo has been linked to self-proclaimed eugenicists and promoting research that supports ideas of scientific racism.

Henry Larson, the Special Investigations Editor for the Bold and CU Independent who’ll be covering the event, talks with us about Rufo and what to expect for tonight.
