The Ferris State YAL chapter hosted a War on Youth tabling event. We prepared for two fun days filled of pong—pong away your debt that is! Many students were brought in by our friendly yet persuasive members. Others were drawn in by their familiarity with the game’s set up.
We informed students of the national debt and each student’s approximate share of it. Some were completely unaware and shocked to hear the numbers we provided them with. Some students were aware, disappointed and wished that pong could actually help lower debt. Over all we received a good response and much enthusiasm with the game. On day two we took advantage of our prime location to promote our event Legalize Freedom: The case against the drug war. We handed out flyers and answered questions regarding the event and about our speaker Ted Nelson.
