Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the Manhattan Institute’s 24th annual Alexander Hamilton Award Dinner. This year we honored Douglas Murray, for his unwavering defense of Western values, and Ross Perot Jr., for representing the best of civic engagement in Dallas and throughout Texas.

Find edited transcripts for Reihan Salam and Paul Singer, Kathy Crow and Ross Perot Jr., and Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Douglas Murray. Video recordings of all the evening's remarks will be available soon.

The Alexander Hamilton Award was created to honor those individuals helping to foster the revitalization of our nation’s cities. We chose to name the award after Hamilton because, like the Manhattan Institute, he was a fervent proponent of commerce and civic life. Through the years, we have expanded the scope of the prize to celebrate leaders not just on the local level, but also at the state and federal levels, who have made remarkable things happen in the realms of public policy, culture, and philanthropy. We hope our celebration of these awardees encourages replication of their efforts.
