Wow, October sure was eventful for the Young Americans for Liberty at UNM.
To kick things off, on October 10, two representatives from YAL at UNM, Vivianne and myself, attended the Students for Liberty Regional Conference in Las Cruces, NM, hosted by New Mexico State University. We learned a lot about different activism techniques and the political environment within the state of New Mexico.
On October 13, we hosted a famous YAL Debate Watch Party. We gathered at Jordan, our ASUNM Senator and YAL member's house to have a great night of socializing and criticizing the presidential candidates on stage. We find these social events to be particularly important, as they build a sense of family within YAL!
On October 14, YAL was invited to a Civil Asset Forfeiture Forum hosted by the Charles Koch Institute and the Rio Grande Foundation, a local liberty think-tank. It was an amazing opportunity to attend the forum and hear many prominent members of the New Mexico community address concerns about Civil Asset Forfeiture, and what makes it such a terrible practice.
