The UW-Oshkosh YAL chapter’s War On Youth activism event was a complete success!
We were able to convey our chapter’s message successfully in the student union and provide prizes such as liberty reading materials and chocolate Easter bunnies for the immensely popular “Debt Pong” game.
YAL was able to talk with students passing through the union about economic issues facing youth upon graduation such as the student loan and national debt burden. Students and even faculty that happened to stop by our table and play were impressed with our message, display and enthusiasm. We were able to generate numerous new sign-ups and hopefully future members!
This has been our first full academic year at UW-Oshkosh. YAL started with 2 initial members, one officer and basic member. We have since grown to about 10 members that attend meetings. About half are dues-paying members.
YAL UW-Oshkosh looks forward to future activism!
