2017 Fort Worth Luncheon featuring Acton Institute president and co-founder, Rev. Robert Sirico

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 27 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, and other supporters and friends of Acton on Thursday, October 5 at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel, for lunch and a special keynote address. Register now to save your spot at this popular event, or become an official sponsor for our Fort Worth Luncheon.

Rev. Robert A. Sirico is the president and co-founder of the Acton Institute and the pastor at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, both in Grand Rapids, MI. A regular writer and commentator on religious, political, economic, and social issues, Rev. Sirico's contributions have been carried by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Washington Times, CNN, ABC, CBS, NPR, and the BBC, among others. In his recent book, Defending the Free Market: The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Rev. Sirico shows how a free economy is not only the best way to meet society's material needs but also the surest protection of human dignity against government encroachment. Rev. Sirico holds dual American and Italian citizenship.
