The YAL chapter at the University of Washington recently participated in the school's first joint policy forum. It featured YAL, UW College Republicans (CRs), UW Young Democrats (YDs) and the International Socialist Organization (ISO) discussing NAFTA. YAL-UW was a leading force in pushing for the forums, after being blocked from the quarterly debates. It is safe to say that going into its third year, YAL has become a constant fixture in UW's political activities. Check out new members, Michael and Will (a freshman!) argue for YAL:
From my understanding, these are the groups' stances on NAFTA:
ISO: Fair trade, not free trade!
YDs: NAFTA has good intentions, but needs tweaking.
CRs: NAFTA has good intentions, but needs tweaking.
YAL: Why do we need a 2,000 page document to create free trade?
