March 04, 2011

More than 40 conservative national speakers are coming to The Awakening 2011 held on Friday, April 8, and Saturday April 9, 2011, at Liberty University. The theme this year is Raising our Voices: Equipping and Empowering a New Revolution. Sponsored by a federation of organizations that comprise the Freedom Federation, The Awakening 2011 will  begin at 10:00 a.m. ET on Friday in Liberty University’s convocation service with Live Action President and Expose Planned Parenthood leader, Lila Rose. The two-day event will pick up at 2:00 ET with a plenary session that includes former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and many others.

Breakout sessions will cover “What is a Conservative: The Social, Economic and National Defense Legs,” “Messaging and Mobilizing a New Generation of World Changers: Turning Youth into Activists,” and more than 15 other topics such as abortion, the economy, religious liberty, marriage and homosexuality, Sharia Law, the Middle East, Human Sex Trafficking, Reaching Minority Communities, Using New Media and Technology to Power a Movement, and other pressing topics of today. The conference will conclude on April 9 with the New Revolution Celebration featuring SonicFlood in concert. Registration is free and open to the public.

The Awakening 2011 is focusing on inspiring and activating this generation to start a cultural revolution that will lead America back to its founding principles. This is a unique combination of many voices from young to old and across racial, ethnic, and generational constituencies who are coming together as part of a new and broad movement united by shared values.

Mathew Staver, Dean of Liberty University School of Law and Founder of Liberty Counsel, remarked: “The Awakening is a celebration of a new movement composed of many voices echoing across racial, ethnic and generational lines. Our shared values unite those concerned with social, economic, national defense, domestic and justice issues. Political parties may seek to divide us, but our values unite us.”
