Freedom is under pressure all around the world.

China has ignored the promises made to Hong Kong and appears to be reassessing its "peaceful unification" policy toward Taiwan. Russia is engaged in a war with a neighbor partly in fear of a free and democratic nation aligned with the West on its border. Further countries like Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea continue to terrorize and impoverish their societies through repressive policies.

This summit will encourage students, faculty, staff, and the community, to engage in civil discourse around the topic of freedom's erosion and its implications.
