About this Event

Stagnant middle class wages, burdensome student loan debt, rising housing costs and delayed family formation have crumbled the building block of our society. For too long politicians have paid lip service to family values but have done very little to support the bedrock institution that undergirds society from the bottom up. If social conservatism is to have a future in American politics, conservatives must become pro-life for the whole of life. As an appetite for a pro-worker, pro-family agenda grows on the Right, it’s worth considering how we might adopt policies to promote strong families, resilient faith communities and a thriving middle class.

On October 14th, The American Conservative, American Principles Project and Plough Quarterly will host a conference in the heart of Washington, D.C. to explore the nature of the crisis and present a winning policy agenda moving forward. This event aims to build a new coalition of conservatives who are committed to advancing pro-family policy and also possess a concrete vision for what it means to make families great again.

The event features two panel discussions:

  • Our Cultural Crisis: Why is Pro-Family Policy Needed Now?
  • A New Policy Agenda: What Does Pro-Family Policy Look Like in Practice?

Confirmed participants include:

  • John A. Burtka, IV, The American Conservative
  • Johann Huleatt, Bruderhof Communities
  • Rod Dreher, The American Conservative
  • Mary Eberstadt, author of Primal Screams
  • Samuel Hammond, Niskanen Center
  • Marshall Kosloff, The Hudson Institute
  • Terry Schilling, The American Principles Project
  • W. Bradford Wilcox, The Institute for Family Studies

Light lunch provided.
