NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson to Participate in Values Voter Summit 2014

Values Voter SummitDr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB, will lead a powerful dialogue about recent attacks to our freedoms of religion and speech during next month’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC.

“In America, free exercise of religion and freedom of speech are foundational rights, not antiquated ideals,” says Dr. Johnson. “They are essential to America’s continued prosperity. But they are under attack from forces unfriendly to freedom. Now more than ever, these are rights we must protect, preserve, and promote.”

Since 2006, the Values Voter Summit has provided a forum to help inform and mobilize citizens across America to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life, and limited government that make our nation strong. Each year it showcases prominent policymakers and leading conservative voices. The event has drawn as many as 3,000-plus attendees from around the nation and foreign countries.

This year, NRB is a co-sponsor for the summit and a sponsor of the event’s radio row. Dr. Johnson, furthermore, will moderate a breakout session, “Abridging the Freedom of Speech: How the Letter and the Spirit of the First Amendment Are Under Siege,” and join a panel to discuss key issues facing us today.

William Boykin (U.S. Army-Ret.), Former Commander, Delta Force; Rick Santorum, Founder, Patriot Voices; Kelly Shackelford, President, Liberty Institute; Todd Starnes, FOX News; and Mat Staver, Chairman, Liberty Counsel.
