The occasion of the award was the 7th Annual Atlas Liberty Forum held in Philadelphia under the auspices of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation. The Atlas Foundation also administers the Templeton Freedom Awards and Prizes named after Sir John Templeton, the noted philanthropist and financial luminary.

Also attending the ceremony was the PSSI’s other Co-Founder, Roger Robinson, and Jana Kosarkova, Acting Director of PSSI’s new Washington office.
