Jeffrey Rosen and the Board of Trustees of the National Constitution Center invite you to the 34th Annual Liberty Medal Ceremony honoring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for his heroic defense of liberty in the face of Russian tyranny. President Zelenskyy embodies the spirit and purpose of the Liberty Medal award, which recognizes leaders who have furthered the ideals of freedom, equality, and the rule of law - the very values under assault in the wake of Russia's brutal invasion. Volodymyr Zelenskyy has served as the president of Ukraine since May 2019.

His courageous leadership in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has inspired people around the world to defend liberal democracy against the threat posed by illiberal authoritarianism, and has won him widespread international praise and awards, including the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award, the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, and awards from the governments of the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Slovakia.

President Zelenskyy announced he will designate the $100,000 Liberty Medal prize to the Ukranian Veterans Fund. Please note that given the circumstances, it is not expected that President Zelenskyy will be in attendance in Philadelphia, but it is planned to include acceptance remarks from him as part of the ceremony. The Liberty Medal, recognizes and celebrates individuals of courage and conviction who strive to secure the blessings of liberty to people around the globe. It has been bestowed upon extraordinary group of men and women; a number of recipients of the Medal have won the Nobel Peace Prize.
