Victoria Rose, Team Lead for Ballot Measures, Ballotpedia
Terry Schilling, President, American Principles Project

Every election cycle is important. However, in recent years the pillars of our nation—faith, family, and freedom—have come under attack like never before.  Next year voters will line the sidewalks at precincts around the country to choose who controls, not just the White House, but Congress, state houses, school boards, and more. Family Research Council Action will host an insightful panel where we will discuss which races are the ones to watch next year. Join us to find out more!

Restoring Faith in America: Opening the Door to Fearless Expressions of Faith (Executive Room)
Matt Krause, Of Counsel, First Liberty Institute

Last year’s Coach Kennedy decision by the Supreme Court threw out the convoluted Lemon Test that the Court had used for decades to inhibit or prohibit public displays of religion. With the Lemon Test gone, there is a unique and exciting opportunity to restore faith in America and to go on the offense. The law has returned to our side. Americans can now enjoy higher levels of religious freedom than we’ve had in generations. This breakout session will teach YOU what you can do to Restore Faith in America.

Parents and Policy: The Perfect Team to Stop the Sexualization of Our Children (Congressional Room)
Todd Gathje, Vice President for Government Relations, The Family Foundation of Virginia
Jeff Laszloffy, President and CEO, Montana Family Foundation
Autumn Leva, Senior VP of Strategy, Family Policy Alliance

From drugs and invasive “gender transition” surgeries on children to sexualized content in children’s libraries, to government officials cutting parents out of the picture, the threat to children’s innocence is greater than ever. Thankfully, parents and policy leaders across the nation are proving they can stand in the gap for children—and win. Together, we will explore how parents and socially conservative policymakers can win the fight to protect children, strategize fresh ideas to combat the Left’s attacks on children’s innocence, and identify new and growing threats. We envision a nation where there are no more lies that children can be “born in the wrong body,” no more drag queen story hours and no more children taken from their parents’ protective care for political reasons. We hope you will join us!
