Jason Bateman, ARI’s new director of Development Operations, is embracing his role as the “New Guy” at ARI. “I’m excited to help take ARI to new levels of expansion and reach,” Bateman says, “as we leverage our mighty group of donors and supporters in the fight for reason, individualism, rational self-interest and liberty.”

Reflecting back on 2017, he is “proud of our noble mission in a sea of growing divisiveness and apathy, while dictatorships and socialist regimes continue to oppress millions worldwide.” Before the year ends, he wants to see support for ARI surge. “Now more than ever,” Bateman says, “we need your gift of time, treasure and talent to grow our movement. If you haven’t joined us as a donor, what are you waiting for? It isn’t too late to make 2017 the year you took a stand and helped pave the path for philosophical and cultural change.”

And more: “I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish in 2018. Happy New Year!”
