The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty awarded its highest honor, The Canterbury Medal, to its founder and president emeritus Kevin J. "Seamus" Hasson at a black-tie gala dinner for more than 500 in New York in May for his pioneering leadership and tireless sacrifices in the cause of religious freedom.  The Canterbury Medal is given to the person who has "most resolutely refused to render to Caesar that which is God's."

Thanks to the visionary work of Hasson, the one-room organization has into a "powerhouse law firm," according to the Associated Press, winning "the greatest religious liberty case in half a century," according to The Wall Street Journal, and garnering praise from a diverse group of thinkers including Pope John Paul II and Elie Wiesel.

For 16 years, Hasson was the driving force behind the intellectual and legal activities of The Becket Fund and continues to inspire thousands with the clarion call to defend religious liberty as a basic human right that no government may lawfully deny.

"Now more than ever do we need the work of The Becket Fund," said Timothy Cardinal Dolan, the Archbishop of New York.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports The Becket Fund.
