10:30 AM Crowdsource Liberty
  Too often, conferences ask you to sit down and stay quiet. Not here! You are invited to speak up and exchange ideas in the Foyer where graduates of Atlas Network’s recent regional think tank training are ready to discuss projects under development to advance liberty. Play an active role in sharpening their plans to make a difference!
   
12:00 PM   Lights, Camera, Liberty! Luncheon and Film Festival
  Knowing how target audiences consume and interpret information is key to our movement's success. Thanks to Atlas Network's Lights, Camera, Liberty! program, partners all over the world are working together to tell powerful stories through video and film. Check out the best videos of 2018 at the Lights, Camera, Liberty! Film Festival.
   
1:00 PM Great Communicators Tournament
  The liberty movement is winning the battle of ideas, but in order to win the policy and political debates, we need great communicators who persuasively discuss and defend the free market and individual freedom.
   
  Think Freely Media has addressed this challenge with the Great Communicators Tournament, an annual event that identifies and promotes individuals who can make emotionally compelling arguments that take the free market or pro-liberty position on current public policy issues. With preliminary rounds throughout the year, the 2018 Great Communicators Tournament finals will take place live at the Atlas Network Liberty Forum. Click here to view a short promotional video.
