Yesterday on NOM Exposed, I told you how the National Organization For Marriage, through its young Culture Director Thomas Peters, is planning on launching something called "NextGen For Marriage." Well apparently this weekend in/at Princeton, there will be the beginnings of organization on that front:

THE NEXT GENERATION FOR MARRIAGE: HOW TO SPEAK FOR MARRIAGE AS THE UNION OF HUSBAND AND WIFE
How do we speak for marriage as the union of husband and wife on college campuses today? To stand for our marriage tradition, as we know, requires courage--it risks being dubbed a “bigot” and “hater” or worse. What can we learn from each other about the most effective ways to speak for marriage and how can we better encourage and support each other when we do?

Maggie Gallagher, nationally syndicated columnist, author of "The Case for Marriage" and co-founder of the National Organization for Marriage teams up with Thomas Peters, Catholic blogger extraordinaire and director of NOM's NextGen for Marriage project to discuss the problems, the challenges, and the exciting opportunities to witness for marriage on college campuses today, and in the professional world tomorrow.

Since 2007 [Peters] has worked in Washington, DC and after completing his second master's now serves as the Cultural Director at the National Organization for Marriage where he is overseeing a new project ("NOM NextGen") to identify and encourage young activists for marriage. He travels around the country speaking to young social conservatives. You can follow him on Twitter @AmericanPapist or find him at Facebook.com/AmericanPapist. His email is tpeters@nationformarriage.org
