This time block will begin with presentation by a member of WikiProject: Conservatism which will brief the audience of the history of editors interested in improving content about conservatism and other notable subjects relating to politics which are to the right of the political center in the United States and elsewhere, including past successful attempts to delete conservative non-main space pages (such as Conservative notice board), and more recent attempts to delete WikiProject: Conservatism (as recent as July 2018). Following this, there will be a workshop discussion about editing within the spectrum of articles which are covered under WP:ARBAPDS, the utilization of WP:RSN in black listing certain sources (as has occurred to certain partisan news organizations), and the advancement of notable topics of interest to the #RESIST movement.
Length of presentation
30-75 min. for workshops
Special requests
This maybe a controversial topic, therefore, moderation of the workshop discussion to ensure civility by a widely respected not-interested individual within the editing community might be advantageous
