LibertyCon International 2024 Announces Warren Rhea and Demetrius Minor to Speaker Lineup

Published on

Students For Liberty is delighted to announce two new speakers for LibertyCon International 2024: Warren Rhea and Demetrius Minor

Washington, D.C., Nov. 7, 2023 Students For Liberty, the largest global pro-liberty student organization, is announcing two new speakers for their flagship event, LibertyCon International 2024. The event will take place at the prestigious Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C., from February 2-4, 2024.

Originally known by his online moniker Bastiat, Warren Rhea is an American attorney who practices corporate law in the energy industry. Jokingly referring to himself as the “chief neoliberal shill” in his online commentary, he argues for individual liberty, free markets, free trade, free movement, and active American engagement with a globalized world.

Some of the topics Warren is expected to be talking about in discussion panels at LibertyCon International next year include potential US involvement in the Russo-Ukrainian War, the challenges involved with the Taiwanese independence movement, and the growing concern over national conservatism across the globe. 

New to the LibertyCon scene, Demetrius Minor educates and mobilizes conservatives around the systematic flaws with the death penalty. Demetrius is a preacher, advocate, and writer who has been the director of coalitions in Florida for Americans for Prosperity, where he worked in partnership with the NAACP, Urban League, and others to build bipartisan support and pass legislation. He comes to LibertyCon bringing his experience as a program director and co-host for political radio, TV, and podcasts; a White House intern; and a pastoral assistant.

“It’s always refreshing to be in the mix of students and activists who are concerned about liberty, freedom, their rights, and who want to make their communities a better place,” Demetrius said when asked by Students For Liberty Marketing Director Joshua Eakle about what he was most looking forward to with regards to taking part in LibertyCon International next year. “These students understand what it means to be involved on a grassroots level; they’re courageous, they’re brave, they feel empowered, their not afraid to confront lawmakers.”

  • Whole Foods co-founder and former CEO John Mackey
