What role must every American play in the multi-year commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the United States that culminates on July 4, 2026. Conservatives have an opportunity to shape the narrative by inspiring Americans through the power of imagination, elevating stories rooted in the founding principles, inspiring service in our communities, and demonstrating the lasting durability of the American experiment. Come discuss the opportunities to celebrate our story of freedom and opportunity.
