WASHINGTON – The annual Values Voter Summit is this week in Washington and as with every year is expected to draw some of the biggest names in conservative politics.
Guest speakers include Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson and International Religous Freedom Ambassador Sam Brownback.
A full schedule of the three-day event can be seen here.
The Values Voter Summit is hosted by the Family Research Council and according to the organization’s website is a “forum to help inform and mobilize citizens across America to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, the sanctity of life and limited government.”
This is the first year a sitting vice president will attend the event.
In an interview with CBN News, FRC President Tony Perkins acknowledged all the Trump administration has done to promote and advance conservative values. Perkins said he’s never seen anything like it, even during the George W. Bush years.
“I think they really took conservatives for granted,” Perkins said of the Bush administration. “This administration does not and as a result, they’re not only listening but they’re acting upon their concerns.”
Perkins believes the time is now for conservatives and Christians to “seize the day.”
“This is an exciting time,” he said. “I don’t know how long the window is here, but I would encourage conservatives, Christians across this country, to be praying, to be voting and to be standing for truth in this time.”
