MARCH 23, 2023 | 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. | HYATT REGENCY SALT LAKE CITY

Sutherland Institute is pleased to bring the AEI FREE Forum to Salt Lake City on March 23, 2023.

This unique policy summit brings together educators, policymakers, philanthropists and other community leaders to chart a course for more widespread and sustained upward mobility for Utah’s youth. This important conversation will be led by special guest and keynote speaker AEI Senior Fellow Ian Rowe. In his new book, Agency, Rowe challenges the negative messages that pervade our culture and offers an empowering alternative that can uplift every young person as they make the passage into adulthood: agency activated and galvanized by the institutions of Family, Religion, Education and Entrepreneurship (FREE).

Session topics will include:

The institutional role of families

The impact of religion

The dignity of work

The power of education
