Escaping Communism Seminar
Stories and Lessons from Survivors
Santa Barbara, California • December 2-3, 2022
“Freedom is not the sole prerogative of a chosen few,
but the universal right of all God’s children.”
– President Ronald Reagan
This two-day program will give high school students insights into the destructive history of communist governments and the contrasting harmony of free enterprise.
Today, young people are taught that socialism and communism are humanistic, compassionate forms of societal organization, and that free markets are oppressive and cause mass suffering and poverty. However, the lived experience of communist government survivors demonstrates otherwise.
Throughout this program, students will hear from some of the brightest minds and survivors from communist countries, be inspired by their stories and insights, and meet like-minded peers from across the country.
This educational program will begin at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, December 2nd and will conclude on Saturday, December 3rd at 4:00 p.m.
