About the Defending the American Dream Summit

All around us a battle of ideas rages, and the very fabric of American prosperity is under attack. Now more than ever, Americans must unite in the defense of freedom and liberty.

Americans for Prosperity is thrilled to annually host the Defending the American Dream Summit where free-market champions from across the nation come together for an unforgettable weekend with a shared desire to advance spreading opportunity and economic freedom.

Attendees of the Defending the American Dream Summit will have the opportunity to receive high-level training from experts who can teach how to affect real change for our nation’s future.

Join us in 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center to take part in cutting-edge activist training, become better educated on relevant free-market issues, network with thousands of like-minded activists, and hear from top-tier speakers and panelists.
