A special thank you to Vince Kolber for graciously hosting this event!

In the face of fiscal irresponsibility—soaring deficits, sweeping new healthcare regulations, and an uncontrollable national debt—the Acton Institute offers a fresh and unique perspective. For over 29 years, the Institute has worked to connect economic freedom, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship with a vibrant Judeo-Christian moral culture. Through a wide range of research publications, visual media, and educational conferences, Acton reaches millions each year with its trademark synthesis of faith and freedom. In addition to common demands for limited government and lower taxes, Acton believes that liberty is best preserved when man’s God-given dignity is recognized and respected. Only when our rights are rooted in something deeper—our intrinsic value as image-bearers of God—are they absolutely secure. Such a vision frees us from intrusive and utopian government initiatives, allowing us to produce wealth and share it with those most in need.

Please join Rev. Robert Sirico, co-founder and president of Acton Institute along with other supporters and friends of Acton on Wednesday, November 11 at the University Club of Chicago, for lunch and a special keynote address by Rev. Sirico. Register now to save your spot at this popular event or become an official sponsor of our Chicago Luncheon.
