ON-Lion Letter

Bradley Prize recipient Robert P. George was elected in June as chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF).  George was first appointed to the commission in 2012 by Speaker of the House John Boehner and reappointed to a second term in 2014.

George is the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University and directs Princeton's James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, which is supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.  He also serves on Bradley's Board of Directors and is a senior fellow of the Bradley-supported Witherspoon Institute.

"I am honored to again serve as chair of USCIRF and work alongside my fellow commissioners in support of religious freedom and belief abroad," George said.  "World events underscore the importance of this fundamental freedom.  Religious liberty is an essential human right and a key element in the quest for regional and global security.  It deserves a seat at the table with economic and security concerns as the U.S. and other nations conduct their affairs.

George served as USCIRF chairman in 2013 and vice-chairman in 2014.

Bradley Prize recipient Mary Ann Glendon serves on USCIRF, as well.
