At Atlas Network, our mission is to strengthen the worldwide freedom movement by identifying, training and supporting individuals with the potential to found and develop effective independent organizations that promote our vision in every country. Few have taken on this mission as passionately as Atlas Network president, Dr. Alex Chafuen, who joined Atlas Network in 1985. We are proud to announce that The Fund for American Studies awarded Dr. Chafuen the 2014 Walter Judd Freedom Award, which recognizes individuals who have devoted their lives to the preservation and expansion of freedom and been outspoken voices against tyranny and oppression in the world and national affairs. Past recipients of the Walter Judd Freedom Award include President Ronald Reagan; National Review founder, William F. Buckley, Jr., and Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick. Dr. Chafuen advances the cause of freedom through his work with Atlas Network, nurturing free-market think tanks around the world, and his many other affiliations with Grove City College, the Acton Institute, Fraser Institute, the John Templeton Foundation, Mont Pelerin Society, the Philadelphia Society, and the Chase Foundation of Virginia, among others. Please join Atlas Network in celebrating Dr. Chafuen's receipt of the Walter Judd Freedom Award - awarded on Monday, July 14, 2014. The award was bestowed in conjunction with several programs sponsored each summer by The Fund for American Studies, an educational nonprofit in Washington, D.C.
