YAL at UW-Madison capped off a wonderful year with a great state convention and our first reveal of the War on Youth activism kit!
Our campus hosted an “All-Campus Party” where students were invited to enjoy free food, games, and information about student organizations on campus. With great weather, Bear Pong, and excited activists, our tabling event couldn’t have gone better. The street was flooded with eager students wanting to join in the game and find out what Young Americans for Liberty was all about! Bucky Badger even joined in the fun by flexing his pong skills and inviting others to join in the fun!
That same night Generation Opportunity and YAL joined in a pre-convention happy hour in downtown Madison. The great conversations, networking, and laughs that were shared among liberty lovers made for a great party! Special thanks to GenOpp’s Wisconsin Field Director Mary Mueller, and others that helped throw such a successful happy hour!
The following day was the Wisconsin State Convention. The event included over 100 attendees from all over Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa, with some activists traveling over 300 miles! We enjoyed motivating, informative, and humorous speeches and presentations from Tom Woods, Jason Lewis, Matt Batzel, David Fladeboe, Caleb Bonham, Creighton Harrington, and Edward King. Effective tools for activism, messaging, and outreach are now in the hands of more than 100 Midwestern liberty activists!
Several sponsors had fantastic tables filled with information and opportunities for activists just outside of the lecture hall. We’d like to thank all those that helped make this event a success. The hard work and planning that YAL at UW-Madison, our Wisconsin State Chair Eric Shimpach, Midwest Regional Director Creighton Harrington, and many more put into the event is very much appreciated and we are ecstatic with how well it went!
YAL at UW-Madison has had a busy but rewarding school year, and we can’t wait to keep the liberty ball rolling with planning for next fall already in the works!Published in
