We're partnering with state and national organizations to bring you one-day campus events designed to build stronger state networks, advance our activists' knowledge and skills, and inspire attendees to their best activism yet.

Our goal is to introduce you to the same top-notch training and networking opportunities made available at our exclusive annual National Convention in Washington, D.C. You will discover new ideas, connect with local leaders, and just have a good time advancing the youth movement for liberty. We'll also bring exciting keynote speakers—the top names of the liberty movement.
