Freedom Federation to Host The Awakening – Voices of a New Movement

The many voices of a new movement will gather for “The Awakening 2010” on the campus of Liberty University on April 15-16. The Awakening 2010 is sponsored by organizations that comprise the Freedom Federation.  The Freedom Federation is a federation of some of the Nation’s largest multiracial, multiethnic and multigenerational faith-based and policy organizations, representing over 30 million Americans united by core values expressed in the Declaration of American Values.

The Awakening is a celebration of a new movement composed of many voices echoing across racial, ethnic and generational lines.  The Awakening begins on Thursday night at 5:00 pm and concludes on Friday night with a Liberty & Justice Rally.  Over 10,000 attendees will hear motivational and informative messages by many national leaders.  There will be a wide variety of breakout sessions, covering topics such as social, economic, and domestic issues, national security, and foreign affairs.  The Freedom Federation’s advanced technological platform will be debuted at the event.  This platform allows independent organizations and individuals to network, blog, create events, find events, and mobilize people who share similar core values.

There will be tracks for pastors, public office seekers, nonprofit leaders, technology, community organizers, messaging, public policy and much more. Inspiring musical artists will bring a variety of entertainment.  A partial listing of speakers is available at where you can register online.

Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, remarked: “Something new is happening in America. A spirit of revolution and renewal is awakening people and uniting communities across racial, ethnic and generational lines.  People are uniting around shared values because of the onslaught of threats to their faith and freedom.  The movement we see building today is broader and deeper than anything we have witnessed in our lifetime. It is not built around a personality or a charismatic leader.  It is a movement made up of many voices and leaders.  The Awakening 2010, sponsored by the many organizations that comprise the Freedom Federation, is a time to unite around our shared values and a time to build upon the strength of the many.”
