Pre-recorded Breakout Sessions
(09-25-20)

THE BIBLICAL CASE FOR CULTURAL ENGAGEMENT

Speakers: Abraham Hamilton, III, General Counsel and Public Policy Analyst, American Family Association
Synopsis: Christians have a unique calling to be salt and light in the world. But should this be limited only to the proclamation of the gospel? In The Biblical Case for Cultural Engagement, Abraham Hamilton III will walk us through the Scriptures to examine the ways God has called every believer to be a cultivating force in the beliefs, pursuits, and practices of society.

TEARING DOWN OUR HISTORY & OUR COUNTRY

Speakers: Gary Bauer, President, American Values
Synopsis: Cultures and societies memorialize their heroes in statues and monuments so future generations can remember and reflect on their accomplishments. In this breakout, Gary Bauer explains why the left's repeated assaults against America's history and memorials are really attacks on America itself.

RACISM, PROTESTS AND "BLACK LIVES MATTER": AN HISTORICAL AND BIBLICAL ASSESSMENT

Speakers: Andrew Wommack, President, Truth & Liberty Coalition; David Barton, Founder, WallBuilders; Bishop E.W. Jackson, Founder, S.T.A.N.D
Synopsis: America has been rocked this year by violent protests sponsored by Black Lives Matter and propelled by Antifa. Much of the media has painted the protests as spontaneous demonstrations arising from the killing of George Floyd. But many signs point to a deeper, more sinister agenda behind these organizations. In this breakout session, Truth and Liberty Coalition President, Andrew Wommack, leads a discussion with David Barton, the founder of WallBuilders ministry and a leader who many call "America's Historian," and Bishop E.W. Jackson, an accomplished pastor, speaker and the founder of the influential organization, S.T.A.N.D. Together, they will address racism in America, both now and historically. They will also discuss the organization, "Black Lives Matter," the violent protests, and the Marxist origins and un-American ideologies that are fueling the conflict.

ADVOCATING FOR THE PERSECUTED: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Speaker: Rushan Abbas, Founder and Executive Director of Campaign for Uyghurs*; Sam Brownback, Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom*; Arielle Del Turco, Assistant Director of the Center for Religious Liberty, FRC*; Bob Fu, Senior Fellow for International Religious Freedom, FRC*; Lela Gilbert, Senior Fellow for International Religious Freedom, FRC*; Dr. Richard Ikiebe, Founder, International Organization of Peace Building and Social Justice*
Synopsis: Across the globe, religious believers face growing persecution from oppressive governments and violent nonstate actors. In China, Nigeria, and countless other countries, Christians and others face hostility and danger simply due to their faith. In this breakout session, top U.S. officials and victims of religious persecution from around the world will explore current challenges to international religious freedom and the importance of promoting the freedom to believe for all people.

HOW THE SUPREME COURT AND THE CORONAVIRUS ARE CHANGING THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION

Speakers: Joseph Backholm, Senior Fellow for Biblical Worldview and Strategic Engagement, FRC*; Corey DeAngelis, Director of School Choice, Reason Foundation*; Bethany Mandel, Editor, Ricochet.com, Columnist, the Forward*; Cathy Ruse, Senior Fellow, FRC*
Synopsis: Education in America is changing quickly and that's good. This panel will discuss how the Supreme Court and the coronavirus is creating both challenges and opportunities in education and what it means for your family.

INTERNATIONAL, FEDERAL, AND STATE INITIATIVES: EFFORTS TO SEXUALIZE CHILDREN THROUGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Speakers: Ryan T. Anderson, William E. Simon Senior Research Fellow in American Principles and Public Policy, DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, The Heritage Foundation*; Andrew Beckwith, President, Massachusetts Family Institute*; Emilie Kao, Director, DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, The Heritage Foundation*; Sharon Slater, President, Family Watch International*
Synopsis: Join experts Ryan Anderson of The Heritage Foundation, Sharon Slater of Family Watch International, and Andrew Beckwith of the Massachusetts Family Institute as they discuss the attempts to sexualize children through their school’s curriculum and share concrete ways you can fight back to protect children.

USHERING IN A NEW DECADE OF PRO-LIFE POLICIES

Speakers: Connor Semelsberger, Legislative Assistant for Pro-Life Issues, Family Research Council*; Hope Hoffman, Dilation and Curettage Abortion Survivor*; Josiah Presley, Curettage Abortion Survivor*; Patricia Rucker, State Senator (R-W.Va.)*
Synopsis: Recent opposition to common sense abortion restrictions like protections for abortions survivors and prohibiting taxpayer funding for abortion makes the next 10 years a critical moment to advance pro-life efforts. This panel will highlight the key pro-life issues facing our country today and how activists and legislators can be the difference in making America a pro-life nation.

THE TRANSGENDER MOVEMENT: INDOCTRINATING AND STERILIZING CHILDREN

Speakers: Erin Brewer, Co-founder, The Compassion Coalition, Author, and Speaker*; Dr. André Van Mol, Co-Chair of American College of Pediatrician's Committee, Adolescent Sexuality*; Brandon Showalter, Journalist, The Christian Post*; Dr. Abigail Shrier, Writer and Author*; Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, FRC*
Synopsis: The impact of the transgender movement on adults -- such as punishing those unwilling to affirm the falsehood that a man can become a woman or vice versa -- is serious. However, the impact on children and adolescents is truly alarming. From indoctrination through "Drag Queen Story Hours" to invasion of privacy in locker rooms and showers to the destruction of girls’ sports to the actual sterilization of vulnerable children, this panel will examine how the transgender movement threatens the well-being of children who have "gender dysphoria" and children who don't.
