Over the course of the Spring 2018 semester, Oberlin’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty tasked itself with recruitment. Throughout the semester, we held different recruitment events and were able to interest several liberty advocates and students interested in opening political discourse on campus. One major accomplishment of this group was writing our first budget for the 2018-2019 academic year. With these funds, we hope to host a bunch of events next year.
One of the main focuses of Oberlin’s chapter of young Americans for Liberty is to expose Oberlin students to a wide array of political opinions in hopes of creating a more tolerant and open minded campus. We believe that the best way to achieve this is through hosting political debates with speakers from different political backgrounds. We hope this will exemplify the importance and power of diversity of opinion, while combatting discrimination of dissenting views on campus. Looking forward to next fall, we are hoping to work towards this mission by hosting an Ohio Senate debate on campus.In our current leadership, Elie Small serves as chair and treasurer, Jake Parentis serves as co-chair, and Siena Marcelle serves as secretary.Published in
