June 21 – 22, 2018
West Des Moines, Iowa
President George Washington in his Inaugural Address of 1789 stated that “the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps, as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” The Founding Fathers entrusted us to defend and preserve the principles of the American Founding.
It is out of this purpose to protect the “sacred fire of liberty” that the Midwest Policy Summit seeks to foster discussion between public policy organizations that work to advance and implement the principles of the American Founding. Our goal is to share ideas, build relationships, and work to better share the principles and policies that create opportunity and promote liberty among our respective states.
