August 19th, Defending the American Dream Summit


The 11th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit is headed to Richmond, Virginia! The event moves around the country each year, and it’s a chance for defenders of freedom to come together to learn, be inspired, and celebrate liberty.

The Summit is hosted by Americans for Prosperity – we’re an organization dedicated to securing economic freedom policies in our country. We have 3.2 million activists who represent us and staff in 36 states and counting. This conference is the chance for activists, staff and free market leaders to come together and learn how to be more effective advocates for freedom.

Featured Breakout Sessions

Give me liberty in… Labor

Conservatives have won great victories in the states on labor reform, but more opportunities (and challenges) remain as unions attempt to organize new parts of the country and the Trump administration works to roll back onerous Obama-era labor rules. Hear from labor policy experts on how the free-market movement is fighting to protect worker freedom at the local, state, and federal level – and what you can do to help.

Give me liberty in… Taxes

Excess spending is hurting states’ economies across the country, but tax reform can help right the course. Learn how the AFP policy team is working with Congress and state legislators on tax and spending solutions to get the country back on track.

Give me liberty in… Energy

President Trump has been making great strides to reduce red tape on the energy industry across the country.  Hear how these reductions are restoring access to affordable power for Americans, and what lies ahead for continuing the roll-back of harmful policy.

Power of the Grassroots!

Hear from these local liberty-minded individuals on what they are doing to advance prosperity in their communities alongside AFP Virginia staff.
