From enacting campus carry to ending vaccine mandates, YAL’s “Student Rights Campaigns” will fight tyranny, advance liberty across America
Austin, TX — Today, Young Americans for Liberty (YAL)—the nation’s most active youth liberty organization—is announcing plans to take on more than 45 new campus fights during the upcoming fall semester. Relying on its thousands of student activists across America, YAL’s primary goal will be to leverage its “Student Rights Campaigns” (SRCs) in fighting tyranny and advancing the cause of liberty at colleges and universities where constitutional rights are currently threatened.
From circulating petitions to organizing protests, YAL is especially determined to defend First Amendment and Second Amendment rights. The organization’s most notable SRCs will include but not be limited to:
- Florida State University: Eliminate the pepper spray ban
- Southeast Missouri State University: End alcohol prohibition
- South Dakota School of Mines and Technology: Implement campus carry
- University of Hartford (CT): Challenge the taser ban
Leading up to the fall semester, YAL is projected to represent over 5,000 student activists at more than 500 colleges and universities around the country. At the same time, the organization’s Hazlitt Coalition—its growing network of pro-liberty legislators—now includes over 270 pro liberty lawmakers from nearly 40 states. Supplementing YAL’s campus fights with state-level policymaking, the Hazlitt Coalition has added dozens of new members in recent months.
“YAL’s Student Rights Campaigns have already shown success in their first year,” said JP Kirby, YAL’s Director of Student Rights. “We’ve got big plans for the program’s second year of action: More types of tyranny attacked, more methods to pressure administrators, more effective activism from our students. We’re taking on over 45 new fights on campus this semester. Our campus activists are learning they can be effective at resisting tyranny on campus. I feel sorry for the campus bureaucrats who are about to find themselves facing pressure from these activists.”
