This past week-end was a big one for YAL. In addition to our ongoing April National Activism project, April All-Out Activism, there were two state conventions and a very successful YAL-sponsored speaking event. In true YAL fashion, student leaders in Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee closed out the semester with a bang!
Indiana YAL Event:
The Purdue University YAL Chapter had a very exciting week-end. Teaming up with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute they brought Dr. Tom Woods to speak at their campus on the topics of fiat currency and the federal reserve. Dr. Woods drew a crowd of over 200 students and representatives from several IN YAL chapters attended the event.
