SESSION 4B - LOCAL SOLUTIONS FOR THRIVING FORESTS, CLEAN PARKS, AND EFFECTIVE LAND MANAGEMENT
There is scant evidence that the federal government is capable of responsibly managing the vast lands and diverse resources, activities, and wildlife under its control. Congress is the often poorly incentivized to make land issues a priority and massive resources are exhausted on regulatory compliance rather than management. However, states, non-profits, and the private sector bring fresh perspectives and creative solutions. This session's panelists each offer valuable ideas and experience to reach outcomes that reflect their community's unique circumstances, histories, and priorities toward better environmental outcomes.

SESSION 4C - HOW THE LEFT USED CAUSES TO TAKE THE LEAD WITH SMALL-DOLLAR DONOR

SESSION 4D - INSPIRING LEADERS TO DRIVE CHANGE: A CONNECTICUT CASE STUDY
Seeing the flame of freedom and capitalism be practically blown out in their state, a small group of Connecticut citizens decided to take a risk -- they signed on to travel to Denver, Colorado once a month for nine months to take part in the rigorous curriculum of the Leadership Program of the Rockies. This intrepid group is now building their own program, Charter Oak Leadership Program, to identify and train emerging Yankee leaders. They will demonstrate how influencers with a strong foundation in core principles can relight the spirit of Freedom anywhere, even in Connecticut. Learn more about how you can spot leaders in your own community and what training is best preparing them for their work ahead.

SESSION 4E - ELECTION INTEGRITY: HOW STATES CAN RESPOND TO THE THREAT OF STOLEN ELECTIONS
The right to vote in a free and fair election is the most basic civil right, one on which other rights of the American people depend. Congress and the states have an obligation to guarantee that every eligible individual is able to vote and no one's vote is stolen or diluted due to fraud or bureaucratic mistakes by election officials. But the security and integrity of the election process is threatened by real fraud and vulnerabilities that are not being fixed.
- Moderator: Hans Von Spakovsky, Manager, Election Law Reform Initiative, and Senior Legal Fellow, Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, The Heritage Foundation
- John Fund, Senior Editor, The American Spectator
- Christian Adams, President, Public Interest Legal Foundation
