Thanks to our Events Coordinator, Josiah Argo, the University of Iowa YAL chapter won second place at this past summer’s YALCON activism event contest within our region. We planned on doing a chapter bonding event with our winnings and decided the end of the semester was the perfect time to do this. We rented out a room at our main library and had a showing of the Snowden movie, ordered some food, and gave our members a much needed study break. This sparked great conversation about government oversight, and our civil liberties.
This event would have never been possible if we hadn’t tried our best during the YALCON regional break out sessions. I would encourage all chapters to go to YALCON together, and participate in all of the events!Published in
