New Organization – Young American’s for Liberty!

I am happy to announce the restart of Akron’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty! My name is Anthony Palumbo, an incoming student at Akron’s School of Law, and I will be serving as the President of the Akron chapter of Young Americans for Liberty, (YAL) in the fall.
Young Americans for Liberty is a pro-liberty student organization with over 600 chapters across the United States. Begun in 2008, it is dedicated to defending the principles of individual liberty, free markets, constitutional limits on government, and a non-interventionist foreign policy, on college campuses across the United States. It performs this mission by various educational events and drives that educate communities about key principles and ideas. These key issues include: 1. the national security state and its violations of human liberty, 2. the national debt and its chokehold on American youth, and, 3. America’s destructive foreign policy, and the problems it causes at home and abroad. YAL is active in organizing speaking events, providing educational materials, training for campaign drives, and many other efforts to mobilize America’s college campuses.
If interested in joining Akron’s chapter, please email me at ajp151@zips.uakron.edu or by phone or text message at 330-933-4976. I would love to be in contact with interested members of YAL before the start of the fall academic semester. In addition to the Akron chapter of YAL, you may become a member of YAL national, at $10 per year. By becoming a member of YAL National, you get a t-shirt and a subscription to YAL’s quarterly magazine, Young American Revolution, at no additional costs. If interested in joining YAL National, please go to http://www.yaliberty.org/chapters/university-of-akron-main-campus or go to yaliberty.org/chapters and find Akron’s chapter by going to “Ohio.” I am excited to start Akron’s chapter of YAL, and would love to meet interested members!
