YAL @ Honolulu Community College Braves the Elements

Hawaii may seem like paradise to some, but for Young Americans for Liberty at Honolulu Community College, it was a test of endurance!  Despite the ever-changing weather in the form of rain, hot, humid sun, and strong winds, Young Americans for Liberty at Honolulu Community College successfully got the attention of students hurriedly passing by in-between classes and lunch!

Some students took the time to write on our free speech wall, asking the very seemingly-simple question of “What does freedom mean to you?” A member of the staff and a campus security guard stopped by to check out what other students wrote. Answers ranged from the very distinct, to the very abstract. Another student stuck around and played some music which garnered interest of more students who passed by.

The Operation Politically Homeless kit was very helpful in catching students attention just before they disappeared to their classes. Students came down to our table and filled out their quizzes, others were just curious as to what Young Americans for Liberty was about as we handed out various literature and pocket Constitutions.

More than 25 students signed in to the event and there were a handful of students who were actually interested in joining our chapter. More photos can be seen at our chapter’s Facebook. Our first chapter meeting will take place next week!
