Robert A. Sirico

"President and co-founder of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, Rev. Sirico tirelessly promotes the ideal of a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and human rights. He is a leading voice in free-enterprise education, liberty, and respect for human rights, and is especially committed to combining religious studies with analysis of economic principles in order to enable students to understand and address poverty and other pressing social problems. Rev. Sirico has traveled extensively in order to study firsthand regimes that violate human rights; China, Cuba, and Venezuela have all drawn his analytical attention. He has published and lectured widely on the role faith plays in promoting human rights as well as on how trade sanctions impair efforts to end human rights violations. Rev. Sirico served on the Michigan Civil Rights Commission from 1994 to 1998, and is a member of the Mont Pelerin Society." [1]

He is a director of the Human Rights Foundation and is on the advisory board for the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow.

He is a known associate of David H. Padden.
