Join us at the TFAS Leadership Summit and be part of the solution to America’s freer future. This timely summit will address the trends of creeping socialism, abuses of power and censorship, which undermine the rule of law and individual freedoms.

TFAS staff and supporters connect at the 2023 TFAS Annual Conference in Amelia Island, Florida.

TFAS believes that the only way to reverse these dangerous trends is by equipping and educating a new generation of leaders with moral courage and a sound understanding of market-based economics.

That’s why the TFAS Leadership Summit will bring together thought leaders and policymakers to share powerful ideas and engage with concerned individuals like you.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the solution. Register now for the TFAS Leadership Summit and join us in our mission to restore America’s founding principles.

Let’s work together to ensure that our nation continues to be a shining beacon of freedom and opportunity for generations to come.
