The Pennsylvania Family Institute, in partnership with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind event for college students: The Pennsylvania Conference on Faith & Society. We will host nationally renowned speakers such as Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation for a stimulating weekend of intellectual rigor and Christian fellowship.
This all expenses paid conference will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 10th and 11th, at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh. Students can register at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute website, and more information can be found there and at the PFI website. Register soon, as spaces are limited and first-come-first-served.
The theme of the inaugural Pennsylvania Conference is Freedom in the Balance: Our lectures, panels, and conversations will have a particular focus on the growing threats to religious liberty across the country. Every day it seems that our culture, both on and off campus, is becoming more and more hostile to people of faith. But with these new challenges come new opportunities to witness to the truth through our words and actions.
Here is a sample of the expected programming:
- Ryan Anderson, Heritage Foundation fellow and co-author of What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense, will speak on the truth of marriage and the religious liberty implications of redefining this essential institution.
- Dr. Christopher Tollefsen, professor at the University of South Carolina and co-author of Embryo: A Defense of Human Life, will bring to light the religious liberty threats that come with the devaluing of human life, from embryo to end-of-life issues.
- Representatives from flagship college activist organizations such as Students for Life of Americaand the Love and Fidelity Network will speak on campus culture and ways students can make a difference in their own communities.
