AGENDA

1:00pm: Registration Opens

1:30pm-2:00pm: Life, Love and Politics in the Real World

Keynote Discussion featuring Rachel Campos-Duffy and Congressman Sean Duffy!

2:00pm - 3:00pm PANEL: Fostering the American Dream

The economy is on the upswing: Unemployment has dropped and wages and benefits are increasing. Yet barriers still remain to helping more people pursue their vision of happiness. What policy reforms can help open more doors and give more people the incentives, skills, and ability to access the opportunities that are available?

3:00pm – 3:30pm DISCUSSION: A Conversation about Health Care

Listen to a conversation between two health care experts about the most pressing issues facing our health care system: prescription drug prices, higher insurance prices, lack of insurance options, and our current Medicare and Medicaid systems. They will dive into the core causes of the current challenges and offer potential solutions.

3:30pm – 3:45pm BREAK

3:45pm – 4:15pm DISCUSSION: Biggest Issues Facing the Supreme Court

SCOTUS expert Leonard Leo of The Federalist Society and IWF’s Legal Fellow Erin Hawley will discuss upcoming challenges facing the Supreme Court.

4:15pm - 5:30pm PANEL: Creating a Better Culture and Safer, Stronger Country

Join us for a panel focusing on the big trends that are impacting our country, including increased risk aversion and concerns about health and safety issues; the #MeToo movement and the challenge of discouraging sexual harassment but without prohibiting normal social interactions; and the need to stand up for human rights and the cause of freedom in an increasing complicated international environment.

Enjoy ales with females at an afterparty sponsored by Anheuser-Busch!
