On October 5th, American University’s YAL chapter has continued to work along with Americans for Prosperity (AFP) in a get-out-to-vote campaign in order to see the push for liberty in practice. Gathered in a large room so that everyone can spread around, our chapter was able to bring 10 members together with the deep desire to make a difference! Nearly two-thirds of the members were freshmen, new to YAL but deeply driven to make a change. Most only had a vague knowledge of AFP, but they were excited to have the opportunity to make a difference the Virginia governor’s race.
As members arrived, our e-board was able to greet them and catch up with our freshmen members to see how they were doing since last seeing them. AFP was able to bring a large catering order of Chick-fil-a for everyone as we were getting acquainted with the phoning system, our Virginia survey, and what AFP is all about. The chapters’ Chief of Staff, Harry Kazenoff, thanked everyone for coming and introduced everyone to Tyler and Bryce, our AFP contacts. After discussing our past events the chapter had with AFP to get-out-the-vote, the two contacts introduced themselves and discussed in what ways we would be helping promote the ideas of liberty in the election.
When we were complete with our calling and getting acquainted, our chapter President, Matthew Adams, thanked everyone for coming and reminded everyone to come to our next event the upcoming Tuesday to listen to our member Daniel talk about how socialism has ruined Venezuela!
