Defending the American Dream Summit


Here’s a message from John Todd about an exciting event to be held by Americans for Prosperity. If you’re in south-central Kansas the bus trip is much easier and less expensive than driving to Topeka. AFP is a great group to be involved with, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of this free bus trip to this important event. The event in Topeka costs $29, but as John says, there are a limited number of scholarships available.

You are invited to join the Wichita Area Chapter of Americans for Prosperity Foundation — Kansas for a bus trip from Wichita to the Defending the American Dream Summit in Topeka on Wednesday March 19, 2008.

AFPF Kansas is expecting citizen activists and students interested in the political process from all over our state to gather in Topeka for the Defending the American Dream Summit, and has authorized the charter of two 47-passenger buses for the Wichita Area Chapter. The round trip bus trip is free, and AFPF has authorized me to award a limited number of scholarships to people whose finances do not allow their attendance. We need your help in filling these two buses!

The Summit provides a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the political process in Kansas and to actively participate in grassroots politics. State legislators, our governor, and public officials respond to citizen input. Your participation and learning more about state government is very important!

Here is a partial list of the guests who will be participating in the Summit:

Senator Sam Brownback
U.S. News & World Report’s Michael Barone. He is also the author of The Almanac of American Politics.
Best-selling conservative author Dinesh D’Souza
Former Congressman Jim Ryan
State Treasurer Lynn Jenkins
AFP — New Jersey Director Steve Lonegan
And hundreds of citizen activists from across Kansas

Please consider joining us for the Defending the American Dream Summit on Wednesday March 19th. We expect to have a lot of fun on the bus and at the event.

  1. The Americans for Prosperity Foundation always has great forums at their Defending the American Dream summits. Did you have the opportunity to attend the one in D.C. this summer? It was a great show of the Presidential candidates and the panels were amazing.

    I wasn’t able to attend the summit in Washington, and due to an injury I suffered, I wasn’t able to attend this event in Topeka.
