Values Voter Summit
Values Voter Summit was created in 2006 to provide a forum to help inform and mobilize citizens across America to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government that make our nation strong. It has drawn as many as 3,000 plus attendees from around the nation and foreign countries. Garnering national and international media attention, CNN named it "one of the conservative movement's marquee annual events" and Sean Hannity called it "the premier conservative event now in the country."
Each year, it showcases the nation's leading conservatives voices such as all 2008 and 2012 Republican presidential candidates; Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Tim Scott and Rick Santorum; House Majority Leader Eric Cantor; Representatives Paul Ryan, Michele Bachmann, Steve Scalise, Jim Jordan, Steve King, James Lankford and Allen West; Governors Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal; media hosts Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Dr. Bill Bennett, Cal Thomas, Lt. Col. Oliver North and Mark Levin; Dr. Ben Carson; Kirk Cameron, The Duggars, Star Parker, and many more.
Since its inception, the Summit's primary sponsor has been FRC Action, the legislative affiliate arm of Family Research Council. Through the years, FRC Action has had the privilege of partnering with other like-minded sponsors including The Heritage Foundation, American Family Association Action, Alliance Defending Freedom, American Values, Liberty Counsel, Liberty Counsel Action, Liberty University, Family Research Council and, for the first time this year, Liberty Institute. Other partnering organizations have also included Media Research Center, Young America's Foundation, The Timothy Plan, Vision America and Susan B. Anthony List.
