On Thursday, April 9, 2015 the Young Americans for Liberty Chapter at University of Texas, El Paso hosted an incredible and successful event to create awareness and educate students on the dangerously and rapidly rising incarceration rates of our nation and of our world. We accumulated more than 60 signups while tabling for Incarceration Nation and brought in two new dues paying members as well!
We had three public speakers, Robert Vega Jr. – a motivational speaker and prison veteran turned success story, Danny “Kike” Perez – a famous political activist, an officer of NORML, and lobbyist for passing marijuana rights, and our UTEP sponsor Dr. Mimi Gladstein – women’s rights activist and public speaker. Each of the public speakers contributed heartfelt insight, as well as controversial perceptions of the U.S. judicial system and judicial reform.
News footage of the event and interview of YAL Chapter President, Jonathan Moises Farias, was on Fox News the day of the event.
