This fall, IJ supporters will have an opportunity that comes along only once every few years: the chance to attend an Institute for Justice Partners Retreat.

IJ’s 2020 Partners Retreat will be held September 10–13, 2020, at The Resort at Pelican Hill in beautiful Newport Beach, California. This weekend gathering will offer an unparalleled look inside the Institute for Justice—from the legal battles you read about in these pages, to the talented attorneys and staff who are waging them, to the clients whose lives and liberties hang in the balance.

Our program will feature keynote addresses from legal luminaries Ken White—best known as his online alter ego, “Popehat”—and New York University law professor Richard Epstein, as well as nationally syndicated columnist George F. Will. We will also hear from inspirational entrepreneurs, including celebrity chef and food truck icon Roy Choi. Throughout the weekend, guests will meet and talk to the real-life heroes IJ is privileged to represent as clients.

Combining immersive panel discussions with relaxation and camaraderie amid the stunning scenery of the Pacific Coast, the 2020 Partners Retreat will take you to the front lines of IJ’s fight for freedom and reveal our strategy and vision for the next decade.

Members of IJ’s Four Pillars Society and those contributing $1,000 or more to IJ each year (Partners Club and Guardians Circle members) will receive invitations to this exclusive event by mail. If you’re not among them, there has never been a better time to increase your commitment to IJ! Simply contact IJ’s donor relations manager, Megan Cook, to confirm or update your support and to reserve your place at the 2020 Partners Retreat:, (703) 682-9320, ext. 230.
