Leo Thuman


Leo Thuman is an undergraduate student at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.  A student on the pre-law track, Leo studies Political Science as a Major, and Economics as a Minor.  Through his policy experience and Catholic faith, he has developed a strong belief that free practice of religion, respect for human dignity, and protection of the family are vital to human flourishing.  He’s a native of the Baltimore area, and is a long-suffering Orioles fan.  When he’s not busy writing or studying, Leo enjoys reading the news, watching hockey and football, and learning about Popes named Pius.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people”. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams
