TAKING BACK AMERICA'S CHILDREN SUMMIT
Roger K. Gannam, Esq.
Assistant Vice President of Legal Affairs
Roger Gannam is the Assistant Vice President of Legal Affairs for Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family. With offices in Florida, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., Liberty Counsel fulfills its Christian mission through many projects and initiatives, including strategic litigation in state and federal courts.
Roger grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, the great grandson of a Lebanese Christian immigrant who came to America in 1910 seeking freedom from oppressive Ottoman rule. Growing up in a Navy family, Roger earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of North Florida, and a law degree, with honors, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
Roger spent the first six years of his legal career in Jacksonville with two international law firms, gaining extensive experience in complex business litigation and class actions. Roger spent the next eight years with a Jacksonville firm, where he became a partner and expanded his practice to include religious liberty cases and advising public officials on free speech, religious liberty, and other constitutional matters.
Roger joined Liberty Counsel in August 2014, after sensing God's call to take up the full-time defense of our most cherished freedoms. Since then, Roger has participated in strategic litigation involving biblical marriage, pro-life and religious free speech, and religious free exercise, including many critical cases challenging the discriminatory censorship of youth counsellors and religious worship. Roger has appeared on a number of television, radio, and print media outlets, including CNN, Fox News, NPR, and the New York Times.
Roger and his wife, Joy, raise their son and daughter in Central Florida.
