The Freedom and Prosperity Center spoke at the 2022 Liberty Forum in New York, New York. Hosted by the Atlas Network, a key financial partner of the Center, the Forum featured over five hundred activists and policymakers from around the world.

Senior Director Dan Negrea gave an overview of the Center’s goals and accomplishments since its launch in June 2022. Deputy Director Joseph Lemoine followed with an interactive presentation detailing the methodology and results of the inaugural Freedom and Prosperity Indexes, while Assistant Director Yomna Gaafar discussed the Freedom and Prosperity Reform Grants, given in partnership with the Atlas Network to innovative policymakers around the world.

The team presented their video on their 2022 Reform Grantees, produced in conjunction with Thinking Out Loud.
