On Thursday, October 25, The Heartland Institute will celebrate the 23rd anniversary of its founding with a lively and fun reception and dinner with speakers at the Hilton Chicago Hotel. We hope you can join us!

The response to last year’s program, featuring a debate between Prof. Richard Epstein and Rev. Robert Sirico on the foundations of classical liberal ideals, was so positive that we’ve decided to go with the debate format again this year.

This year’s topic is: “Was Abraham Lincoln a friend or foe of American freedom?” Arguing in defense of Lincoln is Joseph A. Morris, president of the Lincoln Legal Foundation. Questioning Lincoln’s legacy is Thomas J. DiLorenzo, author of Lincoln Unmasked and The Real Lincoln.

More than 500 people attended last year’s event! Please plan to join us for an evening of entertaining speakers, great food, and good friends.
