FEBRUARY 8, 2017

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk shares a vision for America’s future embracing first principles, free markets, and small government. Join us to learn about a roadmap on how to return to a free America, with an emphasis on reaching our youth.

During the 2016 Presidential election cycle, it has become clear that there is growing frustration on the part of many Americans with the general direction of the nation. There has been an abandonment of the principles of free markets and limited government upon which America was founded. We didn’t get to this point over just the last eight years and it’s going to take more than one or two election cycles to reverse it.

In their presentation of the book Time for a Turning Point, Charlie Kirk and Turning Point USA Board Member Brent Hamachek will show exactly what needs to be done and how it needs to be done to restore America’s freedom. This is a book of hope, not despair—book of action, not condolences.

Join us for this special event at Heartland’s Andrew Breitbart Freedom Center to talk about the future of the freedom movement with two men on the front lines of the battle against leftist indoctrination of the Millennial Generation.
