Values Voter Summit Renews Enthusiasm for Moral Values

A coalition of energetic conservative organizations and individuals from across America gathered on the weekend of October 7-9 for the sixth annual Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.

Over 3,400 people attended the three-day event that included talks by presidential candidates, pro-family leaders, and breakout sessions, making it the largest Values Voter Summit to date. The influential conference gave like-minded Americans the opportunity to hear presentations opposing abortion, socialist healthcare, same-sex “marriage,” and the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, among other topics.

TFP Student Action volunteers manned a booth at the event, showcasing TFP campaigns for moral values on college campuses. Draped behind our table was an eye-catching, eight-foot banner: “God’s Marriage = 1 man + 1 woman.”

Video footage of TFP’s traditional marriage campaign at Brown University elicited many comments: “Y’all are the front lines” or just “WOW.” A selection of TFP publications and books also sparked interest from conference goers. The booth was bubbling with activity, discussions, media interviews, and even a few debates with libertarians who confuse liberty with license.

Various media outlets filmed the lively activity at the TFP booth.

The dynamic conference demonstrates how the movement for moral values in America is at the forefront of our nation’s concern. With renewed commitment and enthusiasm, social conservatives will continue to play a pivotal role in the future of our nation.
