Bluegrass Institute will lead breakout session at this weekend’s Freedom-Liberty Conference in Louisville
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Bluegrass Institute will lead a breakout session this Saturday, Oct. 20, at the annual Freedom and Liberty Conference in Louisville.
The conference, in its third year, will be held at the Ramada Plaza, 9700 Bluegrass Parkway, begins with registration on Friday, Oct. 19. at 5 p.m., followed by a leadership training session from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
On Saturday, Oct. 20, there will be feature presentations, lectures and breakout sessions designed to equip Kentuckians with the knowledge they need to make an impact across the commonwealth.
“Last year’s event with Dick Armey and Andrew Breitbart were a big hit and the breakout sessions were just as good,” said Jim Waters, acting president of the Bluegrass Institute, who also will be a featured speaker at the Saturday morning session. “This conference will equip individual Kentuckians, help grow an educated electorate and give all who attend a renewed sense of empowerment to protect our founding documents – the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.”
The Bluegrass Institute’s breakout session on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. will focus on the institute’s mission, an overview of current policy initiatives, the institute’s Board of Scholars, best practices for open records requests and Kentucky’s public pension crisis.
As part of the institute’s presentation, D. Eric Schansberg, Ph.D., economics professor at Indiana University Southeast and a member of the Bluegrass Institute Board of Scholars, will lead a presentation involving budget, school choice and health care issues.
The institute’s session will include plenty of Q&A and discussion time during each segment.
The keynote speaker for the event is Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America.
