2012 Conference & Strategy Briefing a Huge Success

We just returned to headquarters in Atlanta after hosting our 3rd annual Faith & Freedom Conference & Strategy Session in Washington, DC. More than 1,400 leaders, speakers, and media participated during the three day event, which kicked off with a luncheon featuring Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Rob Portman, and Sen. Jim DeMint. Our general sessions included speeches from Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, Sen. Rand Paul, Herman Cain, Sen. Mike Lee, Dick Morris, James Robison, Gov. Mitt Romney, and Sen. Rick Santorum.

The conference concluded with the Patriot Awards Gala Banquet, where we recognized Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch with our Courage in Leadership Award. We look forward to coming along side so many newly trained and inspired grassroots leaders who will be working hard between now and Election Day to register, educate and activate a record turnout of conservative voters!
