Special Exhibit

Thank you to our friends at Stand Together, in partnership with the Americans for Prosperity Foundation and The LIBRE Institute, for bringing an exciting interactive exhibit to this year’s Keepers of the American Dream reception. Common Ground: Immigration serves as a platform for productive dialogue, revealing that partisan extremes, on both sides, do not represent the point of view and will of the majority of the American people on immigration.


Keepers of the American Dream is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors. For more information, contact Jennifer Maerz at or download the sponsorship deck below.
