Constitution Week at Glendale Community College!

The YAL chapter at Glendale Community College in Glendale, Arizona was back in full force this semester! We began our recruitment effort at our school’s club fair, and had students take the “World’s Smallest Political Quiz” to find out where they stand on the issues. As expected, the vast majority of students were classified as libertarian, but some also fell into the middle, left, and right side of the spectrum.

With help from the Leadership Institute’s Field Representative program, we were able to sign up more than 50 interested students who visited our table to learn about the ideals of liberty.

Following our club fair, we hosted our first meeting of the semester to discuss Constitution Week, and the various types of projects that we would be able to promote on campus. We decided to have a Giant Constitution for students to sign, and also offer pocket Constitutions to all interested students.

Thanks to an aggressive Facebook, flyer, and recruitment campaign, we were able to host our most successful meeting yet, with 17 students in attendance. The free pizza that YAL National offered also helped greatly!

At our meeting, students signed up for time slots to come by and help with our Giant Constitution in the Student Union on Constitution Day, September 17.

We were able to gather many new recruits during our first few weeks of the Fall semester. Just under 100 students have signed up to learn how they can become involved on campus to promote civil, economic, and personal liberties.

In October, we will be hosting U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar who will be speaking on the topic of the Constitution, as well as various recent events, such as Syria, the NSA spying, federal spending, and many other issues. More info on that event can be found here.

For liberty!
