VVS20 ★ About VVS
Values Voter Summit was created in 2006 to provide 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. It has drawn as many as 3,000 plus attendees from around the nation and foreign countries. Garnering national and international media attention, CNN has called it "one of the top 10 political events of the year" and "one of the conservative movement's marquee annual events." Sean Hannity called it "the premier conservative event now in the country." In 2016, then-candidate Mike Pence referred to it as "the greatest gathering of conservative pro-family Americans in the nation."
VVS welcomed President Donald Trump in 2017 and 2019 and Vice President Mike Pence in 2018. It showcases the nation's leading conservative voices addressing life, religious liberty, parental rights, gender confusion, national security and other issues critical to our moral foundation and national strength. Previous speakers have included Cabinet Secretary Alex Azar, Ambassador Sam Brownback; USAID Administrator Mark Green; Dr. Ben Carson; Senators Mitch McConnell, Josh Hawley, Lindsay Graham, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Tim Scott; Representatives Vicky Hartzler, Steve Scalise and former Representatives Michele Bachmann, Mark Meadows, and Allen West; then-Governors Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Perry; media personalities Allie Stuckey, Eric Metaxas, Dennis Prager, Todd Starnes, Dr. Bill Bennett, Erick Erickson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Dana Loesch, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson; Dr. Alveda King, Kirk Cameron, Star Parker, the Benham Brothers, national pro-life advocates including Lila Rose and David Daleiden, whose investigative work exposed the truth about Planned Parenthood; nationally recognized terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel; military and intelligence analyst Dr. Sebastian Gorka; Dr. Carol Swain; and national best-selling authors Joel Rosenberg and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. Mariam Ibraheem, the Sudanese Christian sentenced to death for her faith, was honored with the inaugural Cost of Discipleship Award in 2014; in 2015, Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, was awarded the second Cost of Discipleship Award; and in 2019, Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was wrongfully accused and imprisoned for two years in Turkey, received the third Cost of Discipleship Award.
