“We Will Not Conform” is a chance to learn, share and engage with fellow attendees who are frustrated with the principles of common core education. By the end of the night, the brainpower, experience and passion of moviegoers from around the country will be captured in a comprehensive, unified plan of action.
“Educating our children is one of the most important responsibilities we have, and the system is failing. Common Core will only make things worse,” Glenn Beck said. “This event is a chance for anyone who’s tired of sitting idly by to actually make their voice heard and do something about it.”

His quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America.

Beck also hosts acclaimed live-events, oversees the fashion brand 1791 and is the publisher of GlennBeck.com. He previously hosted phenomenally successful daily shows on Fox News and CNN’s Headline News.
