Featured Speakers

Rep. Mia Love

(R-UT)

Rep. Love is best known for her conservative positions on limited government, increased citizen liberties and limited restraints on business. She believes the best thing she can do as a Congresswoman is to urge the federal government to stay out of the way of business and out of the lives of citizens. She advocates a return to the personal responsibility and reduced government dependency.

Description

In celebration of Black History Month, we salute the achievements of African Americans in U.S. history and recognize some of the great leaders who created change at the local level and grew to have a national impact.  Together we are building an America where freedom, opportunity, and civil society can flourish, realizing that the best solutions to problems are often found closest to the problem itself.  The United States is made up of individuals who come together in their communities to improve society whether it is expanding educational opportunities, creating economic opportunities in their neighborhoods, or endeavoring to advance policies that protect our fundamental freedoms.
