With unrepentant socialists like Sanders and Corbyn riding waves of popularity on the Left and retrograde protectionism making inroads on the Right – it may not feel like a hopeful time for friends of liberty. Is the Big Government Goliath invincible? Atlas Network CEO Brad Lips says no. There are hundreds of reasons for hope among the think tank partners of Atlas Network.

Join Brad on Thursday, July 13 at the Penn Club of New York in New York City for an update on the state of the worldwide freedom movement, and a discussion of how friends of freedom can work together to achieve lasting social change in the direction of liberty. Come learn more about why the global struggle for liberty is so important and how the Atlas Network’s worldwide army of Davids is fighting back against the Big Government Goliath.

The event is open to Atlas Club members and Trendsetters members. For all others there is a $50 suggested donation.
