The Student Liberty Front had a very successful spring quarter at Drexel University and would like to share some helpful hints for other YAL groups and other organizations looking to follow the same path when preparing for the fall term!
1. Set themes and stick with them
For the spring term, our executive board selected a theme -- economics -- to use for every meeting and event that we were to organize. The reasoning behind choosing this theme was that economics is the foundation to the ideas of liberty and it was important to educate members. We ended up handing out Bastiat books, protested Tax Day, participated in the Philadelphia End the Fed protest, watched movies, hosted Peter Schiff at Temple University, and had meetings strictly on topics in economics. We wrapped up our term with a speech given by a member of the Philadelphia community, Michael Salvi, on a topic related to the future of the economics of liberty.
2. Use national organizations' resources
YAL has a number of resources to provide to official YAL groups, including free books, tabling kits, conferences, high quality training from organizations like the Leadership Institute and American Majority, and even the possibility to bring big name speakers like Ron Paul to your campus.
