For our Constitution Week activism, we set up a Free Speech Wall and a second wall titled, “What is liberty?” on the opposite face of the board above. Taped to the banner on each side were both sides of the “Why Join YAL” handout, which boosted our email list.
Since there were no student activities fairs during our Constitution Week, we left our poster walls up for more than a week. The Free Speech Wall was much more successful than other wall, mostly sparking inspirational quotes. Overall, the project was a good introduction for YAL to our student body — a focus on civil liberties as a starter provided a positive impression.Published in
