WASHINGTON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, Sept. 9, Atlas Network will host a special event in San Francisco to highlight the spirit that took down the Berlin Wall, and how that spirit can be reignited across the globe to tear down today's Berlin Walls.
Atlas Network CEO Brad Lips said, "Today it is hard to remember how the Berlin Wall – that barrier to freedom that held half a continent captive – seemed absolutely permanent… until it wasn't. Barriers to freedom still exist all over the world. Many seem permanent. But Atlas Network partners are working to tear down – one by one – today's Berlin Walls."
