Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, remarked: “The Awakening is a celebration of a new movement composed of many voices echoing across racial, ethnic and generational lines. Our shared values unite those concerned with social, economic, national defense, domestic, and justice issues. Political parties may seek to divide us, but our values unite us.”
