WASHINGTON—The Heritage Foundation today announced that five U.S. senators will address the organization’s Leadership Summit on April 20-21. Sens. Josh Hawley, Mike Lee, Tim Scott, Rick Scott, and J.D. Vance will appear at the event marking Heritage’s 50th anniversary.
The five senators are leading figures in the conservative movement, advancing priority legislation on Capitol Hill, holding the Biden administration accountable, and advocating for the voice of the American people.
“These senators represent the best of the conservative movement today, and we are proud to host them as Heritage celebrates its 50th anniversary,” President Kevin Roberts said. “All five of these conservative leaders work tirelessly to disrupt the Washington status quo, whether on foreign policy, Big Tech, government oversight, or any other major issue facing the everyday American. They work day-in and day-out to counter the Biden-Harris regime, and represent some of the best voices in the conservative movement.”
This year marks 50 years since Heritage’s founding on Feb. 16, 1973. The conservative policy organization will celebrate this important milestone with a two-day Leadership Summit on April 20-21, followed by an evening gala at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
“Heritage has been doing great things from the start, and I want to congratulate them on their 50th year in action. I look forward to 50 more years of transformative impact,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said.
"Over the past five decades, the Heritage Foundation has done invaluable work to shape the conservative movement and advance its principles,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said. “Their tireless advocacy for limited government, free markets, and individual liberty has been instrumental in shaping the American political landscape. I look forward to the continued success of the Heritage Foundation in the years to come.”
“I’m proud to join Heritage as they celebrate 50 great years fighting for Conservative values. Grassroots groups like Heritage help make the voices of Americans across the country heard in DC as we work together to fight for the American dream,” Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., said.
"Today as belief seems to be going down, and attacks on religious liberty are going up, the Heritage Foundation is more important than ever to restoring faith in America,” Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said. “I'm proud to partner with and celebrate 50 successful years of Heritage leading the conservative movement."
“As conservatives, we owe so much to the Heritage Foundation and all that they’ve contributed to our cause over the past fifty years. Congratulations to everyone who has taken part in their extraordinary accomplishments. I’m grateful for the opportunity to join you all on this special occasion,” Sen. JD Vance, R-Ohio, said.
Heritage’s Leadership Summit will kick off the morning of Thursday, April 20, with remarks from Heritage’s president. The summit will demonstrate consensus around big-picture questions facing America and deliver a conservative policy agenda equipped to unite the movement around an offensive strategy to take back our country from the regime of the Left, restore self-governance, and rebuild key institutions of civil society.
Featuring leaders from every sector of the conservative coalition, the Leadership Summit will further unpack strategies and tactics for the federal, state, and local levels to both halt the Left’s cultural onslaught and defend and strengthen our most cherished institutions and principles.
Heritage will announce additional information and Leadership Summit speakers in the coming weeks. The summit will be open to a limited number of news outlets. For more information, click here. To apply for a press pass, click here. For inquiries, please contact Noah Weinrich ([email protected]).
