As with most YAL chapters throughout the country, Glendale Community College (AZ) participated in the “Generation of War” activism project, utilizing the great recruitment tools that were developed by national YAL.
For Generation of War, we decided to simply set up a table, and allow students to play “Pin the Drone on the Warzone.” Luckily, we were able to secure a table in front of another club’s event (that was in support of amnesty), where they were giving away free food and playing festive music. This helped attract more people to our table, and helped us to communicate our message of non-interventionism, and putting an end to our destructive drone policy throughout the Middle East.
In addition to allowing students to “Pin the Drone,” we also handed out the Generation of War quiz, and allowed students to guess which of the answers were correct for each of the questions. Only one student that we talked to was able to successfully complete the quiz with all the correct answers, and those who had incorrect answers were able to realize their mistakes and learn from them.
This was a very successful recruiting event, and our chapter is looking forward to the rest of the semester!Published in
