  • Constitution Day at Truman State!

    Last Friday, September 16th, the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at Truman State University in Missouri celebrated Constitution Day by saturating our campus with Constitutional awareness. We handed out 250+ pocket Constitutions in a span of three hours! On top of this we practically cleared out our chapter’s inventory of the “What to say to …

  • University of Misssippi Free Speech Wall

    For our chapter’s free speech wall this year, we staffed a display right on the main plaza of our campus. We were initially concerned after administrators asked us to self-censor the wall, but the event went off successfully, and without any intervention. At first we were worried about the weather for the week, but it …

  • The Founding Fathers visit Citrus College to fight free speech zones

    This year at Citrus College, we teamed up with the Leadership Institute to host our first Civil Liberties Grave Yard!

  • Liberty Constitution Week: Aftermath

Despite a bit of conflict, we had a generally productive Constitution Week. However, our Free Speech Wall led to the suspension of our club. We …

  • Butler YAL Constitution Week and Recruitment Drive

    With the start of the new school year, it was time for more liberty activism! This year, Butler YAL started strong by having fall recruitment as well as Constitution Week.

  • Free Speech Wall and Campus Recognition

    Our Free Speech Wall was a big hit in Free Speech Alley at Louisiana State University. It was a little slow starting, but once a few people started writing on it, people seemed more comfortable with writing what they wanted to – analogous to free speech/expression in general? Despite limited tools and transportation, our group …

  • Clemson University Free Speech Wall!

    This year for our Constitution Week activism we focused on creating a giant Free Speech Wall and passing out pocket Constitutions to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution.
