  • Free Speech Ball at Middle Tennessee State University

    My chapter and I had a blast rolling our Free Speech Ball around campus this past week. We were able to spread the ideas of liberty in a very fun and engaging way, and we generated interest for our meeting the next day, which resulted in meeting several new members who were ready to be …

  • Fight for Free Speech @Murray State University (KY)

    On Monday, April 9th, I went out to finest place I know to make it even finer. I went out hoping to get the ball rolling on campus, but there was a small hole in there. I then had to change my strategy and do things the old fashioned way; clip-boarding for signups! I ended …

  • Liberty Doesn’t Take a Holiday at West Texas A&M

    With Everyone getting back to school and starting the new semester it is important to recognize some chapter members who took classes during the winter break. It would have been easy for our chapter to sit through our classes and go home to enjoy the little break we did have. My chapter members however took …

  • FIghting Speech Codes at Truman College

    Truman Colleges’ YAL chapter was started to fight the unconstitutional speech codes at school as well as to grow its membership. The chapter put on a free speech wall!

One of our favorite events was our “Pie the Candidate” event in which students …

  • Appalachian State University – Fall of 2016 Update

    Greetings from Appalachian State in Boone, North Carolina. The Appalachian State Young Americans for Liberty Chapter chose to stand up for free speech on our campus this semester. We are hoping to officially take down these unconstitutional restrictions in the Spring. Our university, like many others across the country, has implemented “safe spaces” across 99.7% …

  • I couldn’t help but notice…

    … as I set up my table Wednesday the 16th, in defiance of the campus “free speech zone” policy, a strange hypocrisy at play. These disgraceful speech policies, under which the school threatened to have me removed from campus just last week, seem not to apply when the faculty approve of a student’s message. While …

  • NC State Loves Free Speech, but Admin Doesn’t

    On November 4th, the YAL chapter at North Carolina State University decided to protest the free speech zones on campus. We started off the day on a sugary-sweet note, with Krispy Kreme donuts and conversations with a freedom-loving NCSU professor in the Brickyard — NC State’s official “free speech zone.” Fear not, we left the …
