  • University of North Florida Happenings

    YAL at UNF has been hard at work in our advocacy of private property. Recently we hosted Adam Kokesh on campus and to our delight we had a turnout of 20 people at the event, with some familiar faces in the mix. YAL at UNF also recently has a public tabling and clip-boarding event in …

    Young Americans For Liberty at the University of North Florida has been hard at work. We have tabled every other week since the start of the semester with various events between tabling days.
