Principles First Summit

Issues: Governance

Principles First is excited to announce a two-day grassroots summit at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on February 26-27, 2022 focused on discussing and advancing a more principled politics in the United States. We look forward to bringing together conservative and independent speakers, thought leaders, and grassroots activists for two days of panels, speeches, networking, and substantive discussion about the meaning of conservatism today and the future of our movement.

The 2022 Summit will build on the success of our 2020 Summit, which convened over 300 principled Americans from 30 states, also at the National Press Club. The speakers lined up for this gathering will be some of the leading thinkers in the principled lane and many of our #PrinciplesFirst grassroots activists from around the country are planning to travel in for the event. It will be the first time since the 2020 election and the onset of COVID that the principled movement has gathered in one place.
