Bartholomew was among the recipients of this year's Four Freedoms Awards, which are presented each year to men and women whose achievements have demonstrated a commitment to those principles which President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed in his historic speech to Congress on Jan. 6, 1941 as essential to democracy. The awards were founded to celebrate the four freedoms espoused by Roosevelt in his speech: freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear.

During Saturday's ceremony, Bartholomew received the Freedom of Worship Award while former President of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva received the International Four Freedoms Award. Al Jazeera was honored with the Freedom of Speech and Expression medal, while the Freedom from Want Award was given to women's activist Ela Ramesh Bhatt of India and the Freedom from Fear Award was awarded to Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Hussain al-Shahristani.
