Whether you work caring for young children, sitting behind an office desk, or researching in a library carrel, break times are always valued. Maybe it’s when your toddler is asleep or after a long meeting or the completion of a major project. Whenever it is, we all need some time to decompress and refresh ourselves as we complete our daily tasks.

Family Research Council’s lecture series gives you a chance to recharge and reflect, to slow down the pace and consider some of the key issues confronting our culture. Whether you join us in person here at our Washington, DC headquarters, listen live on-line, or tune-in to a recorded version of the event at a later time, you’re sure to learn and draw encouragement from our leading-edge speakers and thinkers.

Here are two of our upcoming events; click on the links to register (at no charge) to attend or listen-in:

Wagner v. Jones: Faculty Discrimination and Conservative Politics - Teresa Wagner, professor, wife, mother and third-generation attorney, took the University of Iowa College of Law to court for political discrimination based on her conservative and pro-life views. Join us as she gives an account of her determination to speak truth to power, how her struggle affected her and her family, and how she ultimately was vindicated by a unanimous jury and by two decisions of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Teresa will share her extraordinary story with us on March 18.

Distortion: How the New Christian Left is Twisting the Gospel and Damaging the Faith – On April 1, Chelsen Vicari of the Institute on Religion and Democracy will talk about her book Distortion and how the Evangelical Left is damaging the church’s testimony and diminishing our ability to stand for truth in the public square. A young Evangelical leader, Chelsen’s compelling presentation will challenge Christians to stay – or, perhaps, get – involved in public life.

Thanks for your continued commitment to advancing and defending faith, family, and freedom in a society that needs them so desperately. We’re grateful to partner with you.
