Student group at Reagan Ranch 2012Young Americans from
across the country will gather at Young America’s Foundation’s
Reagan Ranch Center for a weekend-long program featuring some of
the nation’s top conservative leaders, including bestselling author
Peter Schweizer who will deliver the keynote address at the opening
dinner on Friday, November 8. 

Mr. Schweizer, one of the most informative and insightful
writers in the country, recently released his newest
book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy
Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets
, which exposes government
corruption rampant in Washington.  This book has made national
headlines and was recently featured on 60
Minutes.

Other conservative leaders addressing the program include
Congressman Tom GravesBen
Shapiro
, Louisiana State Senator Elbert
Guillory
Dan
Flynn
Jon Fleischman, and others.
These influential conservatives share the ideas that made America
great: individual freedom, a strong national defense, free
enterprise, and traditional values. This conference is one of many
breakthrough programs sponsored by Young America’s Foundation
throughout the year at the Reagan Ranch Center and across the
country. 

Conference participants will also walk in President Reagan’s
footsteps at his beloved Rancho del Cielo, where they will gain a
greater appreciation for the President and his lasting
accomplishments. Rancho del Cielo was President Reagan’s home for
nearly 25 years and the Western White House for his eight years in
office. It is at the Ranch that he hosted world leaders, including
Mikhail Gorbechev, Queen Elizabeth, and Margaret Thatcher. Young
America’s Foundation stepped forward to save this historic property
in 1998 and is preserving it as a place for young people to come
and learn about the life of Ronald Reagan and the ideas that
inspired him. 

The conference will be held at the Reagan Ranch Center,
217 State Street, Santa Barbara, 93101. Members of the media are
encouraged to contact Amy Brooker at (805) 957-1980 for more
