The Values Voter Summit is one of the most important conservative events of the year, and it will kick off on October 7 at the Omni Shoreham in
Already confirmed are several Members of Congress, including House Speaker John Boehner (R–OH) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R–VA); media personalities Mark Levin and RedState.com’s Erick Erickson; leading voices against Obamacare, including Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli; pro-family activist Bishop Harry Jackson; and many more. Sean Hannity calls it “the premier conservative event now in the country.”
As a sponsor of the Values Voter Summit, The Heritage Foundation will be there in force this year. Robert Rector, whose recent study on poverty lit up national media from Fox News to the Huffington Post to the Drudge Report, will lead an interactive panel discussion on “How the Welfare State Erodes the Family.” Recently starring in the short film We Still Hold These Truths, Matthew Spalding, Ph.D., will host an informal breakfast on American renewal. And the policy experts behind “Saving the American Dream” will share the way forward to fix our national debt, cut spending, reform health care by empowering patients—not bureaucrats—and restore prosperity in America.
To close the weekend, the Faith, Family and Freedom Gala Dinner will honor Heritage’s own Ed Meese, former Attorney General under President Reagan, with the Vision and Leadership Award. Notables including Levin, Phyllis Schlafly, and Heritage’s President Edwin Feulner, Ph.D., reveal behind-the-scenes stories and lessons from Meese’s revolutionary career.
