The House Anti-Woke Caucus, a newly formed group that hopes to defund and expose wokeness throughout the federal government, shared its previously unpublished membership list with the Daily Caller.

The group will include 26 Republican members of Congress and is being led by Indiana Rep. Jim Banks. The caucus hopes to focus on offering amendments that defund and expose wokeness at federal agencies such as the NIH and the DOJ. Banks and the group believe that no piece of legislation that “spends taxpayer dollars on leftist activities should pass out of committee without a recorded vote on an amendment to defund wokeness.”

“The Anti-Woke Caucus’s goal is to root out all all far-left political programs from the federal government. Republicans must use our House majority to protect taxpayer’s from being forced to fund woke and divisive ideologies,” Banks told the Caller.

Here Is Who Will Serve On The Anti-Woke Caucus:

  • Indiana Rep. Jim Banks
  • Florida Rep. Michael Waltz
  • Texas Rep. Brian Babin
  • New York Rep. Claudia Tenney

In March, the caucus endorsed a piece of legislation titled the Fairness, Anti-Discrimination and Individual Rights (FAIR) Act. The bill would specifically prohibit the Biden administration, federal contractors or any other recipient of federal funds from intentionally discriminating against or granting a preference to any person based on their race, color or national origin.

The group also held its first dinner in March to discuss plans and goals. A source in the room told the Caller that the dinner included 11 members of the Caucus and special guests Stephen Miller, who was a senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, and the Claremont Institute’s Arthur Milikh.

The dinner lasted over two hours, and members were actively engaged in conversation about legislation the Caucus should introduce in order to fight the cultural left, according to the source.
