Future of Freedom Luncheon Forum


Through the Future of Freedom Luncheon Forum, The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) engages current and emerging leaders of the conservative and libertarian movements in broad and thoughtful discussion and collaboration about how to advance the principles of freedom and the Western rule-of-law tradition.

Participants of the Future of Freedom Luncheon Forum will connect with influential leaders and peers and engage in important philosophical discussions.

Leading this initiative for TFAS is Dr. Donald Devine, a prominent scholar on fusionism and author of 10 books, including his most recent, “The Enduring Tension: Capitalism and the Moral Order.”

This new luncheon series is made possible through the John William Pope Foundation’s Future of Freedom Initiative grant. Along with several reinvigorated TFAS programs, this series will refresh, rebuild, and revitalize American conservatism.

“With this grant, TFAS will cultivate and enhance our work to develop courageous leaders for liberty,” said Steve Slattery, TFAS COO and executive vice president“The overall goal is to invigorate, create thoughtful and provocative content, and increase collaboration for leaders in public policy in order to advance freedom.”

Participants will engage in Socratic-style roundtable discussions with peers interested in revitalizing the American Experiment.

Attendance to this luncheon series is by invitation only. Please contact Ryan Wolfe, manager of continuing education programs, at rwolfe@TFAS.org with any questions.
