As the contentious 2016 campaign season draws to a close, hundreds of university students are coming together to focus on strong marriages and sexual integrity as the bedrock of a health society.
In the coming days, nearly 300 college-age students and alumni from 54 universities around the country will gather on the Princeton University campus for a conference that hopes to "re-energize a grassroots movement to change campus culture."
The goal of the gathering is to equip attendees with the knowledge and resources they need to effectively witness to an authentic understanding of love in their college communities, explained Caitlin La Ruffa, executive director of the Love and Fidelity Network, which is hosting the conference.
"It's not news to say that our culture has lost sight of the true meaning and purpose of sexuality and marriage," La Ruffa said, "but the upcoming presidential election presents that fact in stark relief."
