Ryan T. Anderson Center for Arizona Policy Event


SCOTTSDALE, Az — Center for Arizona Policy is holding an event on September 23rd, 2017 at Embassy Suites Scottsdale, 5001 N. Scottsdale Rd. in Scottsdale, Arizona at 7:00 PM.

About Center for Arizona Policy (CAP):

Center for Arizona Policy  promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage and family, and religious freedom.
As a nonprofit advocacy group, CAP works with state legislators and other elected officials at all levels of government to ensure that public policy promotes foundational principles.

Our heart is to create an Arizona where:

  • The sanctity of human life is protected from its very beginning to its natural end.
  • Marriages and families are strengthened and supported by public policy, not attacked or weakened.
  • Religious freedom is affirmed and protected, free from government interference.

The event will feature speaker Ryan T. Anderson, Ph.D.

Mr. Anderson is the William E. Simon senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation and a leading expert on the national debate on marriage, gender identity, and religious freedom issues.  Ryan will join Center for Arizona Policy on Tuesday, September 26th, for a special gathering to offer insight about religious freedom and living as people of faith.
