Earlier this month, the new YAL chapter at the University of Montevallo held a recruitment drive to gauge interest in YAL on campus and to get interested students signed up. We thought it would be somewhat successful, but there was a lot more interest than we initially anticipated.
About 14 people signed up and showed interest in either coming to a meeting and helping out with activism or just learning more about YAL as an organization. Unfortunately it began raining outside so we had to pack up fairly quickly and head inside.
All in all this event has encouraged us because it has opened up a dialogue that wasn’t present before on our campus. We are excited for the future of our chapter and spreading the message of liberty on our campus.
