We the People Convention: Heritage Foundation to Cosponsor Ohio Liberty Event

WASHINGTON, DC—Matthew Spalding, vice president of American Studies at The Heritage Foundation and author of the best-selling "We Still Hold These Truths,” will deliver remarks at the We the People Convention, set for July 1 and 2 in Columbus, Ohio. The Heritage Foundation is a cosponsor of the event.

“The upcoming We the People Convention is important,” Spalding said, “not only for Ohio but also in advancing our larger, shared mission of restoring liberty and constitutional self-government in America .”

Organizers describe the purpose of the convention as “to recruit, educate, and motivate Ohio citizens at the grassroots level to perform their constitutionally defined role in the governance of their townships, municipalities, counties, as well as in our state and nation, by providing opportunities, knowledge, and training to ensure limited constitutional governance.”

The Heritage Foundation is America ’s most broadly supported public policy research institute. Heritage works to develop effective policy solutions based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. A total of 28,913 of Heritage’s 710,000 members reside in the state of Ohio .
