Tony Perkins to Speak at NRB’s Proclaim 18 Convention in Nashville

Tony PerkinsFamily Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins will speak during the Thursday morning Super Session at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention that will be held February 27-March 2, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Super Session will focus on online censorship and feature a panel of speakers including Larry Elder, host of The Larry Elder Show, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List; Dennis Prager, host of The Dennis Prager Show; and FOX News’ Todd Starnes. The session will also highlight Internet Freedom Watch, NRB’s new initiative to counter online censorship. Introductory remarks will be made by Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.

“We are glad to have Tony Perkins join us at Proclaim 18, our 75th annual Convention, and to have him speak during our session on online censorship,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, president & CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). “He is a tireless advocate for the family, and he brings a unique perspective to public policy discussions as an ordained minister, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, and a former police officer.”

Perkins is FRC’s fourth and longest serving president, joining the organization in August 2003. In addition, Perkins is the host of the daily, nationally syndicated radio show Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, and author of No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth.

Described as a legislative pioneer by the national media, Perkins has established himself as an innovative pro-life and pro-family policy and political leader since first being elected to office in 1996. Recognized as the leading conservative and pro-life voice in the Louisiana Legislature, Perkins had a significant impact on Louisiana politics as a state representative and as a candidate for the United States Senate in 2002.

Today, he continues to deepen FRC’s influence on Capitol Hill and throughout the country, while also expanding the organization’s reach across the nation by building a major network of pastors and churches, encouraging them to impact the culture by thinking nationally, but acting locally.

Other speakers at Proclaim 18 include Vice President Mike Pence; ministry leaders Rick Warren, Greg Laurie, Kay Arthur, David Jeremiah, Luis Palau, and Billy Kim; actors Jim Caviezel, Dennis Quaid, Stephen Baldwin, and filmmaker Alex Kendrick; radio talk show hosts Larry Elder, Eric Metaxas, and Dennis Prager; thought leaders Phil Cooke, Ed Stetzer, and Joel C. Rosenberg; and many more.

In addition, musical artists will include MercyMe, Fernando Ortega, and Michael W. Smith. The emcees of the Convention will be twin brothers, authors, and entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham.

Proclaim 18 will take place February 27-March 2, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, while NRB’s award-winning Exposition – featuring around 200 exhibitors – will be open February 28-March 2. The annual Convention is the largest nationally and internationally recognized event dedicated solely to assisting those in the field of Christian communications.
