Thursday, August 31st was a great day for liberty in sunny Philadelphia. The University of Pennsylvania chapter of YAL participated in the Fall Student Activities Fair, the largest club recruitment event of the year. For three hours liberty-loving members handed out information about YAL and pocket constitutions to very receptive students.
The chapter got over 60 recruits!
Many people who came to the booth had no idea what YAL does but, after conversations with the chapter members, expressed frustration that they had not heard of it earlier! Students were asked about which events they’d like to see Penn YAL do and were particularly interested in a free speech ball and inviting a speaker with challenging ideas. Some students even offered to help plan and put on events right off the bat!Published in
