The struggle to protect our freedom continues. After key victories, many conservatives are tempted to pause their efforts and overlook that the Left never stops fighting for their radical agenda.

Now is the time to fight back!

The principles upon which our nation was founded will not be swept away overnight, but we must remain diligent in defending our freedoms against those who believe the government knows best.

As President Ronald Reagan once said, “The best view of big government is in the rear-view mirror as you’re driving away from it.

On February 10 and 11, young conservative leaders from around the country will rally together at Young America’s Foundation’s Freedom Conference in the Lone Star State. Hundreds of students will come together to strategize and learn the best methods to boldly promote conservatism in the year ahead. During this premier program, you will -

  • Meet like-minded freedom fighters from across America
  • Be inspired by top leaders in the Conservative Movement
  • Breathe that free Texas air
  • Discover ways you can champion conservative principles at your school and beyond!
