Texas Values, Center for the Preservation of American Ideals, and CWA of Texas are hosting Heritage Foundation’s Ryan T. Anderson for an educational event entitled “What is Marriage?”. With attacks on marriage growing daily and the federal judiciary engaged in a massive state-by-state effort to redefine marriage, it is a critical time to redouble our efforts to boldly stand for marriage in our schools, our churches, and throughout the public square. Please join us for this free event to learn how to talk with your family, friends, and church about the importance of preserving marriage as one man and one woman and protecting religious liberty. Here are the event details:

Ryan T. Anderson is one of the nation’s foremost marriage advocates and is co-author, with Princeton’s Robert P. George and Sherif Girgis, of the acclaimed book “What Is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense” (Encounter Books, December 2012). Justice Samuel Alito cited the book twice in his dissenting opinion in the Supreme Court case involving the Defense of Marriage Act.
Anderson, who joined the leading Washington think tank DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society in 2012, also is the editor of “Public Discourse,” the online journal of the Witherspoon Institute. He researches and writes about marriage and religious liberty as the William E. Simon Fellow at The Heritage Foundation. Anderson’s recent work at Heritage focuses on the constitutional questions surrounding “same-sex marriage.” Read his full bio.
