A Day to Celebrate the Life and Work of Milton Friedman

The Commonwealth Foundation and REACH Foundation are pleased to invite you to the


Milton Friedman Legacy Event


A Day to Celebrate the Life and Work of Milton Friedman 

The Commonwealth Foundation and the REACH Foundation will be honoring Nobel Laureate economist Dr. Milton Friedman as part of the national Friedman Legacy for Freedom campaign on July 31, which would have been Friedman’s 95th birthday. The event, held in partnership with the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, will explore the impact Friedman and his free-market theories have had on our society.

Although celebrations of all of Friedman’s ideas will be held throughout the country on this day, Pennsylvania organizations will focus on parents’ right to choose the school that best meets their child’s educational needs.  The Commonwealth Foundation and the REACH Foundation will hold a roundtable discussion that will focus on the benefits of school choice and steps that need to be taken to promote school choice in the Keystone state. The discussion will include legislators and media to attempt to familiarize them with many of the issues surrounding school choice.  In addition, a press conference will highlight the Friedman Legacy and unveil the latest school choice research and information from the Commonwealth Foundation and the REACH Foundation.
