Republican Senate nominee former Chief Justice Roy Moore will headline the 12th Annual Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. along with former Trump administration Chief Strategist Steven Bannon, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-Louisiana, talk radio host Laura Ingraham, Dr. Alveda King, author Sebastian Gorka, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Congressman Mark Meadows, R-North Carolina, and other conservative-thought leaders.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the 2017 Values Voters Summit!” Judge Moore said on social media.
“As Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has said, with this event, values voters will send a clear message to the political establishment: true Conservatives are on the march! This is sure to be a blast, and I can’t wait to see everyone there!”
The Values Voter Summit is on Oct. 13 – 15. It is the single-largest gathering of social conservatives in the nation each year, with roughly a couple thousand attendees from all across the nation. The event is hosted by the Family Research Council and showcases a lineup of senators, governors, congressmen, movie stars and national leaders on religious liberty, family values and the pro-life movement, among others.
“Values voters made a difference in President Trump’s victory on Election Day and now they are headed for the U.S. Senate,” FRC President Tony Perkins said.
“Despite voters giving Republicans the majority in the House, the Senate and now control of the White House, almost every promise made to voters over the last seven years has come to reside in the U.S. Senate’s graveyard of political promises. Steve Bannon, who helped orchestrate the grassroots political movement that led to President Trump’s success is now moving to Act II—the U.S. Senate,” President Perkins, who also superintends VVS each year, said.
“We are excited that Steve Bannon and Roy Moore will be joining values voters in sending a message to the Establishment: true conservatives are on the march,” declared Perkins.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise will address his miraculous recovery from a shooting that rocked the nation.
“For so many Americans, seeing him back at work, defending our values, has been an answer to prayer. His fighting spirit in overcoming the odds is a source of inspiration for those who are fighting for the heart and soul of our nation and our culture. I look forward to welcoming my friend and former colleague back to the Values Voter stage,” Perkins said.

Values Voter Summit was created in 2006 to provide a forum to inform and mobilize citizens across America to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government that make our nation strong. It has drawn over 3,000 plus attendees from around the nation and foreign countries. Garnering national and international media attention, CNN has called it “one of the top 10 political events of the year” and “one of the conservative movement’s marquee annual events.” Sean Hannity called it “the premier conservative event now in the country.”
Judge Roy Moore faces former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones on Dec. 12 in the special general election.
