Sen. Lindsey Graham & Rep. Burgess Owens Will Address Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” Policy Conference 2023

DULUTH, Ga. – The Faith & Freedom Coalition today announced Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep. Burgess Owens will speak at its 2023 Road to Majority Policy Conference, the largest public policy gathering of conservative and Christian activists in the nation, at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C. 

Road to Majority will feature over 70 speakers and an estimated 3,000 attendees throughout the weekend. 

Lindsey Graham was elected to the United States Senate in 2002 and was reelected in 2008, 2014, and 2020. He became the first person in South Carolina history to garner over one million votes in the 2008 general election.

Prior to serving in the Senate, Graham was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994 as the first Republican from the 3rd Congressional District of South Carolina since 1877.

Before being elected to Congress, Graham compiled a distinguished record in the United States Air Force as he logged six-and-a-half years of service on active duty as an Air Force lawyer. From 1984-1988, he was assigned overseas and served at Rhein-Main Air Base in Germany. Upon leaving active duty Air Force in 1989, Graham joined the South Carolina Air National Guard, where he served until 1995. During the first Gulf War in the early 90s, Graham was called to active duty and served stateside at McEntire Joint National Guard Base as Staff Judge Advocate, where he prepared members for deployment to the Gulf region.

In 1995, Graham joined the U.S. Air Force Reserves. During American military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, Graham put his experience in military law to use, pulling numerous short-term Reserve duties in both countries over congressional breaks and holidays.

Graham retired from the Air Force Reserves in June 2015, having served his country in uniform for 33 years. He retired at the rank of Colonel.

Burgess Owens is the Congressman from Utah’s 4th Congressional District. Born in the segregated South, he saw people of all backgrounds come together to work tirelessly against adversity.

As a young man, Burgess was one of the first four black athletes recruited to play football at the University of Miami and the third black student there to receive a scholarship, ultimately earning a B.S. in biology and chemistry. He was the 13th pick in the first round of the 1973 NFL draft and joined the New York Jets, later playing safety for ten seasons in the NFL for the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, winning the Superbowl with the 1980 Raiders’ team.

After retiring from the NFL, Burgess worked in the corporate sales world and eventually moved the Owens family to beautiful Utah. Before being elected to Congress, he started Second Chance 4 Youth, a nonprofit dedicated to helping troubled and incarcerated youth.

Burgess now serves as a member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Burgess believes in dreaming big and follows the four guiding principles of faith, family, free markets, and education.
