Join Atlas Network for a special program on Thursday, Oct. 22, in San Francisco, to learn about heroic efforts to reclaim freedom — here in the U.S. and in trouble spots worldwide. Our featured presentation will come from Adriana Lopez, from Venezuela. Her brother has been the most prominent leader of the political opposition to Chavez and Maduro, but he now languishes in a Caracas jail cell as a prisoner of conscience. She knows her brothers suffers to bring freedom to an unjust country.  

Our afternoon program will share additional insights from Atlas Network partners, including: 
  • Sally C. Pipes (President & CEO, Pacific Research Institute, U.S.) — on a plan to achieve affordable, accessible, quality care for all Americans
  • Marni Soupcoff (Executive Director, Canadian Constitution Foundation, Canada) — on strategies for protecting our individual liberties 
  • Gabriel Calzada (President, Universidad Francisco Marroquín, Guatemala) — on how to revolutionize higher education to spread the ideas of freedom 
  • Brad Lips (CEO, Atlas Network, U.S.) — on the freedom movement's "Davids" who are facing down —and sometimes winning against — the State's "Goliaths"
The luncheon begins at noon and optional afternoon programming runs from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. This event is being held jointly by Atlas Network and Pacific Research Institute (PRI) on the heels of PRI's Annual Gala Dinner on Oct 21 with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It is held in honor of Atlas Network and PRI's common founder, the late Sir Antony Fisher, who would have turned 100 years old this year. It is part of the William O. Sumner Event Series, named in honor of Atlas Network's Board Member Emeritus.
