Young Americans for Liberty at Arizona State University had a great time promoting constitutional awareness on campus. On Monday, October 1, YAL and other pro-liberty clubs took over the Memorial Union stage at ASU. At the YAL table, we laid down a large replica of the United States Constitution for students to sign, and encourage them to include their state, following the example of the original delegates to the Constitutional Convention.
The response from students and visitors was overwhelmingly positive! We also handed out pocket Constitutions, which were a huge hit, and invited students to our meeting the next day featuring ASU’s own Barry Goldwater Chair of American Institutions, Dr. Donald Critchlow, an expert on the American founding.
Dr. Critchlow gave an incredible talk on the principles behind the Constitution in which he highlighted the historical significance of the Constitutional Convention, educated attendees on the early political history of the United States, and shared his belief in the absolute necessity of an informed electorate.
After the meeting, attendees met up at Bad Mother Cluckers for conversation, food, and drink.Published in
