Washburn University Incarceration Nation tabling event

On April 21, 2015, the Washburn University Young Americans for Liberty did a tabling and social media event on campus to inform people of the over criminalization of the United States of America.

We had a jail cell for students to take pictures and tweet out awareness of the criminal justice system in the United States. On one side of it we had the booking wall where they took pictures with a sign that had in their booking number that spelled out “police state.”

We also had supplies provided by YAL that gave statistical information about our criminal justice system. We got the campus paper to write a story about our event.

We were able to find a few interested members to join our chapter.
