As the semester came to an end, YAL @ Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona, concerned and excitedly, joined the efforts to fight the War on Youth and planned for our last project of the semester.
The plan was simple. Protest the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and host Congressman Paul Gosar so students and members of the community could discuss issues affecting Americans around the country and in Arizona.
We created a custom flyer that we gave out to students at our protest. It was labeled “The Truth of Obamacare.” Information came from a policy analysis done by the Cato Institute. Students were very interested, and the flyers can be found at the end of this blog post.
As we protested we advertised our event with Congressman Paul Gosar and gave out over 200 flyers with information about our event.
Congressman Paul Gosar spoke about issues affecting young Americans that are robbing future generations of opportunities. He spoke about Benghazi, Obamacare, Immigration Reform and a host of other issues which students and members of the community asked him about. We had 42 individuals attend our event, and many came up to our members and thanked them for organizing such an awesome event.Published in
