Turning Point USA, or Turning Point, is an American right-wing organization that advocates conservative narratives on high school, college, and university campuses. The organization was founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk and William Montgomery. TPUSA's sister organizations include Turning Point Action, Turning Point Endowment, Students for Trump, and the Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty at Liberty University. The group also works closely with PragerU.
Turning Point USA annually hosts several conferences on various topics throughout the year, e.g. the Teen Student Action Summit, Young Women’s Leadership Summit, Young Black Leadership Summit, and Young Latino Leadership Summit.
The organization is known for its "Professor Watchlist", a site that "exposes" professors that TPUSA claims "discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom". Academic faculty listed have reported receiving threats and harassment, including death threats, after being added, with some professors being added for any mention of race or politics, including in academic publications. The Anti-Defamation League has reported that the group's leadership and activists "have made multiple racist or bigoted comments" and have links to extremism, including white supremacy. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, TPUSA has attempted to influence student government elections in an effort to "combat liberalism on college and university campuses."
