After a year of regrettably resting on our laurels, the YAL chapter at Central Methodist University in Missouri has now been officially recognized by our school and held our first activism event!
During our school’s student Fair on the Square event, we tabled for about two hours and made half a dozen sign ups! In addition to tabling, we also set up a Free Speech Wall…er, Tree!
The courthouse in the town square was lacking in good, open wall space, so we went with the next best thing and wrapped our blank posters around a nearby tree trunk.
We held our follow-up meeting the following Monday evening and are in the process of helping two new potential dues paying members through the sign-up process. Our official chapter kick-off meeting will be held at the end of September, so stay tuned for more!
