The David Network

A network of hundreds of conservative students and faculty from the Ivy League, Stanford and MIT.

JAN 25, 2025

Washington, DC

About

We are a network of hundreds of students from among America's top universities who are interested in the values and policies that lead to human flourishing, especially from the Judeo-Christian tradition, and related first amendment rights. These values include the inherent dignity in every human life, the important role of Abrahamic religion undergirding civil society, and the institution of the family. We are sympathetic to various paths leading to this vision of human flourishing, including a robust defense of religious liberty and freedom of expression, and protections for the unborn and other vulnerable persons in society.

We value free speech and inquiry, on campus and beyond, and believe that substantial constructive progress can be made through student initiative. We welcome and include students who may not hold these values but are interested in the discussions and opportunities we provide.

We convene annually for a conference following the Washington DC March for Life, where students can learn about the architecture and underlying principles of the religious liberty and pro-life cause, the broader conservative movement, and its allies.

The David Network’s annual summit is an opportunity for students to meet peers, personally engage with leaders of the conservative movement, and return to their campus equipped to contribute to renewal on campus and in society.

 

We focus on how conservatives, akin to David, can thrive and effectively lead with great encouragement at our hostile progressive institutions, Goliath.

 

By providing ideas, substantive support, and the right connections, we intend for the students to return to campus and seize the initiative to effect substantive change within the Ivy League and the institutions we go to as alumni thereafter. By building a network of young conservatives leveraging their elite institutions, we hope to benefit the country long into the future.
