WE, as Young Americans for Liberty believe:
that government is the negation of liberty;
that voluntary action is the only ethical behavior;
that respect for the individual's property is fundamental to a peaceful society;
that violent action is only warranted in defense of one's property;
that the individual owns his/her body and is therefore responsible for his/her actions;
that society is a responsibility of the people, not the government.
Young Americans for Liberty's goal to raise awareness about liberty-minded beliefs, each chapter performs a variety of events on campus, including fundraising for liberty-minded causes, hosting speakers, or tabling/protesting. Chapter all over the United States host events on campuses such as free speech walls, Constitution Week, and YAL-oween (which Lindenwood's chapter hosted earlier this year as you can see in our previous blog post)!
Young Americas for Liberty was started by Ron Paul's National Youth Coordinator, Jeff Frazee, and launched the organization with an ambitious goal of starting over 100 campus chapters in 2009. From 2009 onward, the organization's growth exploded. YAL went from 150 chapters at the end of 2009 to 600 chapters as of April 2015, and as a Lindenwood University student I am proud to be president of one of those chapters!
The Bottom Line:
Young Americans for Liberty is the perfect organization for students who want to be a part of something relevant to their lives and to the lives of everyone around them! We promote activism, give back to our community, and at the same time aim to give students the leadership skills they need to succeed! Before I was asked to be president of Young Americans for Liberty I found myself unable to find a meaningful school organization to join! YAL is the best of both worlds - we get to meet new friends, discuss things we are passionate about, and also make a difference on our campus and beyond!
Students of Lindenwood, please don't think that you have to be a political science or business major to join YAL! Personally, I am a Comparative Religions major at Lindenwood and I still love this organization and everything it stands for and am honored that I get to be a part of it!
