Make an investment in yourself and in our nation’s future. Take a friend or relative to attend The Center for Vision & Values’ ninth annual conference, “Citizenship and the American Cause” at Grove City College on April 11-12, 2013. America has a citizenship problem, and a citizenship opportunity.
Surveys demonstrate that millions of Americans just don’t understand the underlying principles of our free, democratic republic. Is it any wonder that we face challenges like a failing public education system, a “fiscal cliff,” whopping unfunded pension and healthcare liabilities and a whole host of alarming social ills? But, of course, there’s hope! We must relearn, teach and communicate those basic principles of citizenship that have made our country great. In this conference we’ll ask questions like:
What is citizenship? What is the difference between a subject and a citizen? Who deserves to be a citizen? Why were large segments of our population denied citizenship and harassed under Jim Crow laws? What role can writers and the media play in restoring a sound citizenship foundation? What has happened to our textbooks? Have we lost a sense of community and should we care about communities in our increasingly electronically connected world? What role does the military play in creating sound citizens? How do we humanely and legally assimilate illegal immigrants today?
Join us and our marquee lineup of speakers as we address these citizenship issues and many more in our ninth annual conference titled “Citizenship and the American Cause.” As a bonus, we’ll give you 18 original papers written specifically for this enlightening event!
We hope to see you at Grove City College, where you’ll hear nationally syndicated radio-host and best-selling author Michael Medved speak on “How the Jewish-American past can inform the nation’s future,” Drs. Paul Kengor and Steven Jones on “Who’s Un-American: Communists and Muslims in America,” Pepperdine’s Ted McAllister on “Progressivism and Citizenship,” and Jennifer Roback Morse on how “It Takes a Family” to build model American citizens. This conference is loaded!
As you interact with some of America’s leading intellectuals, enjoy wonderful banquet meals and relax on Grove City College’s spectacular campus, you’ll be making an investment in our nation’s future. Join us in our mission to restore the faith and freedom foundation of American citizenship and advance liberty around the world! We hope you will join us and our all-star lineup of fascinating intellectuals on April 11-12, 2013. And, please tell a friend about this dynamic learning opportunity!
