The University of Pittsburgh’s Young Americans for Liberty chapter is opening the 2017 fall semester with a bang! On August 27, the Pitt panthers recruited 116 sign ups during the three hours that spanned the university’s activity fair. The western Pennsylvania liberty warriors continued the forward momentum on Wednesday night of August 30 with its opening meeting that is jointly run with Students For Liberty. The meeting began with an introduction to YAL and SFL and then focused on a discussion about mass incarceration in the United States. It was attended by 50 students, an unprecedented turnout for the University of Pittsburgh’s chapter. This attendance more than doubled that of last year’s opening meeting and marks the continual growth of liberty on campus. Just in the 2015-2016 school year, the weekly meetings were attended by an average of 6 members. Making significant strides in the 2016-2017 school year, average weekly attendance rose to approximately 15 members per meeting. The rapid growth that has occurred in the short span of two years is not a spontaneous phenomenon but the result of steadfast dedication by the hard-working young men and women who comprise Pitt’s YAL chapter. With this shared passion for spreading the message liberty, no bounds can constrain the growth YAL will experience at the University of Pittsburgh or any other campus around the country.
