Step 1: Build the Youth Army for Liberty

Step 2: Take Direct Action to #MakeLibertyWin

In January 2018, YAL launched Operation Win at the Door. The goal of Operation Win at the Door is simple: to elect 250 legislators who share our commitment to liberty by the end of 2022.

This will be accomplished by deploying teams of youth activists to campaigns nationwide who can knock doors and engage with voters directly.

Operation Win at the Door knocked on over 1 million doors and secured 39 victories.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why does YAL only endorse candidates for state legislature?

In every endorsement we give, we seek to generate the greatest impact possible. The candidates we propel to victory will not only enact legislation on the statewide level today, but will run for even higher office tomorrow.  

  • What does YAL look for in potential candidates?

Our two main criteria for candidate endorsement are: 1). Principle; and 2). Viability. Because we receive more recommendations than we can endorse, our candidate review process is kept highly selective.

  • What does a YAL endorsement mean?

For each candidate we endorse, we will send a team of youth activists to our candidate’s district to knock doors, make phone calls, and conduct electioneering at polling locations. Teams are typically deployed during the final month of the election.

  • Does YAL take into account partisan affiliation?

Young Americans for Liberty is a strictly nonpartisan organization. As such, our determinations for candidate endorsement are made without regard to partisan affiliation. Candidates of all parties are welcome and encouraged to fill out our survey.

  • How can I get involved with Operation Win at the Door?

YAL is continually seeking to fill its ranks with new talent and enthusiasm. Applications for Election Coordinator positions re-open every election season. In the meantime, you can help support our mission by donating here or following us on social media.
