  • Free Speech Ball at Middle Tennessee State University

    My chapter and I had a blast rolling our Free Speech Ball around campus this past week. We were able to spread the ideas of liberty in a very fun and engaging way, and we generated interest for our meeting the next day, which resulted in meeting several new members who were ready to be …

  • Campus Carry at The University of Alabama

    Thursday was a proud day, our chapter had its open holster day in support of campus carry. It is essential to support the rights of students to defend themselves, and current efforts to restrict the second amendment will do nothing to protect our campuses. By displaying an open holster while attending class our members made …

  • Free Speech Ball at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

    Last week, a few members of our executive board and Sasha Anderson got outside and did a little activism. We talked to a few students about our organization and we had a lot of people interested in showing up to our meetings. It was overall a fun time! I really enjoyed getting out there and …

  • Recruitment Drive at Carroll University

    On February 20th we held a tabling event outside of our Main Dinning Room promoting a discussion on the 2nd Amendment. In the wake of the horrific shooting down in Florida there has been an out cry for gun control and to figure out how to stop these senseless killings. We thought as a chapter …

  • Free Speech Ball at University of Texas at San Antonio

    On Tuesday, February 13th, The YAL chapter hosted a free speech ball that was rolled around the busiest areas of our campus.

    The Cal State University, Long Beach (CSULB) student publication, “Daily 49er”, published an article in November 2017 titled, “Conservative and Liberal Students Find their Voice at CSULB.” Although the title presented an initially unifying tone, the subtitle was not as settling: “A battle between conservative and liberal expression increasingly plays out on college campuses” (Daily …

  • Free Pot Brownies @ Carroll University!

     For our Membership Drive at Carroll University, our chapter handed out brownies in a pot to students. No the brownies did not actually contain cannabis, they simply we brownies that were in a big cooking pot. During the event we were promoting our event by “speaking loudly” across our campus center to get people to …

  • Spring Recruiting at Alderson Broaddus University

    Alderson Broaddus University hosted a spring recruitment event on Wednesday, January 24. It was a rather slow flow of foot traffic, but as always, the event proved worthwhile. We received a fair amount of attention from students and faculty and got a handful of signups. We are considering tabling again this month in order to …

  • Share the Constitution at University of Alabama

    Last Week, January 30th to February 2nd, our chapter of Young Americans for Liberty held our Share the Constitution event. It was an event spanning 4 consecutive days, which we figured was a great way to get out and educate our student body. We stood on our quad from 12:30-1:30, which are the busiest hours …

  • Free Speech Ball at Georgia Southern University-Armstrong Campus

    February 1st was an exciting time for the Armstrong YAL chapter. This is our second event on campus this semester and we got a great deal of attention. We talked to many people despite the university not allowing us to table. During our event we got 80 students to stand against the unconstitutional free speech …
