NRI’s half-day conferences are part of our Buckley Legacy Project, which protects, promotes, and enhances the consequence and ongoing influence of our founder-William F. Buckley Jr. Launched in 2015, The Buckley Legacy Project is designed to make Buckley’s work on crucial, relevant topics accessible to our supporters, friends, and allies within the conservative movement. Through the Buckley Legacy Project, NRI promoted the republication of The Unmaking of a Mayor, partnered with the Hoover Institution to honor Firing Line‘s Golden Anniversary, and has held several book events and discussions that further examine and remember Buckley’s honorable legacy.

We are pleased to bring this series of half-day conferences to our friends and supporters across the country.
