The Values Voters Summit is a collaborative effort of several key organizations from the Religious Right, including Family Research Council, American Family Association Action, Heritage Foundation, American Values, Liberty University, and Liberty Counsel. A veritable who's who of the American Right, the website lists Rep. Michele Bachmann, Speaker John Boehner, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Phyllis Schlafly, Tony Perkins, Glenn Beck, Lila Rose, and many others as confirmed speakers this year. The titles of some of this year's breakout sessions say volumes about the tone of the event:
- "Divorcing God: Secularism and the Republic"
- "How the Welfare State Erodes the Family"
- "Exposing and Defunding Planned Parenthood, America's Abortion Giant"
- "Why Christians Should Support Israel"
