Visualize the Debt at USF

YAL @ USF educates students, and the media on the nation’s debt problem

The Young Americans for Liberty at the University of South Florida successfully educated both their fellow students, and the local media on the issue of the US national debt. Thanks to a generous donation from YAL state chair Byron Longworth, the USF chapter was able to build a debt wall that stretched over seventy feet long!

Students were wowed by the unbelievable number for nearly a week, and we educated them on the details of the debt problem as they came by. Here’s some more of the pictures.

After an impressive three day tabling event, where we educated students on the challenges posed by the national debt the chapter was contacted by the local media (special thanks to Fox 13 of Tampa Bay), who covered the story that night on the evening news. 

The news coverage can be viewed here, as well as a montage of our project from beginning to end:
