Brandon Tatum as Master of Ceremonies  Brandon Tatum

We are thrilled to announce that Brandon Tatum will be our Master of Ceremonies at our 2nd Annual Gala in October.  One of Brandon's most viral rants attracted over 70 million views on Facebook alone. His social media influence reaches over a million people per month. A former Tucson Police Officer and current Director of Urban Engagement for Turning Point USA, Brandon resonates with the themes of individualism and independence in Ayn Rand’s literature.  “I’m excited to work with The Atlas Society, especially their creative approach to making philosophy accessible to young people,” says Brandon. After meeting Brandon at a student conference, Atlas Society Jennifer Grossman recognized him as a “pivotal player with enormous potential to popularize Ayn Rand to new audiences.”
