  The Roosevelt Institute honored five distinguished laureates during the FDR Four Freedoms Awards on September 29, 2015 in New York City. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was awarded the Freedom Medal for her decades as a champion of fairness, compassion, and equality for all Americans in the eyes of the law. Arthur Mitchell received the Freedom of Speech and Expression Medal for his use of art to transcend boundaries. Dr. Olufunmilayo Olapade received the Freedom from Want Medal for her groundbreaking diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in underserved communities. Rev. Dr. William Barber received the Freedom of Worship Medal for his work building progressive coalitions in his native North Carolina and across the country. The Nation  received the Freedom from Fear Medal for its commitment and dedication to truth-telling by covering difficult, substantive and relevant new stories.

WHO: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Freedom Medal Arthur Mitchell, Freedom of Speech and Expression Medal Dr. Olufunmilayo Olapade, Freedom from Want Medal Rev. Dr. William Barber, Freedom of Worship Medal Katrina vanden Heuvel on behalf of The Nation, Freedom from Fear Medal WHEN: Tuesday, September 29, 2015; 5:30-7:30 p.m. WHERE: St. James’ Church 865 Madison Ave New York, NY Press will check-in with Chris Linsmayer at the door.

 Since 1963, the Four Freedoms Awards have been presented in alternating years by the Roosevelt Institute in the U.S. and Roosevelt Stichting in the Netherlands. Past recipients include some of the most distinguished Americans and world citizens of our time, including Presidents Harry S. Truman, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, H.R.H. Princess Juliana of the Netherlands, author Barbara Ehrenreich, civil rights leader Coretta Scott King, labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, former chairwoman of The Washington Post Co. Katherine Graham, former South African President Nelson Mandela, former U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright, author Arthur Miller, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and the Dalai Lama. ### Until economic and social rules work for all Americans, they’re not working. Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Roosevelt Institute reimagines the rules to create a nation where everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity. We are a 21st century think tank bringing together multiple generations of thinkers and leaders to help drive key economic and social debates and have local and national impact.
