Though this school year has just begun, YAL @ UC-Riverside has been busy. Last week was UCR’s annual Block Party, a concert at which organizations are permitted to table at booths provided by the University. Unfortunately, we had been unable to reserve a booth. Despite this, Ben, our outreach director, came prepared with signup sheets, pocket Constitutions, and other literature.
We met a group that generously gave us their reserved booth because they were unable to table. Over a period of two hours we got 36 sign-ups, which, considering that the location of our booth was in a somewhat obscure area and that students were there to party, was quite impressive. We are looking forward to a successful year!
