The future survival of our republic demands that we invest time and effort to give our youth the tools they need to start and grow youth chapters as teenagers on college campuses. More importantly, to establish a foundation rooted in the defense of their individual liberty, adherence to our Constitution and Bill of Rights and to be willing to hold elected officials accountable to both goals. 

Campuses across the nation are saturated with one political philosophy, too many of our youth feel punished for daring to critically think outside the box and for themselves. As the liberty movement continues to grow, more and more of our youth see that there are other viewpoints to consider and as they do a growing number of students are choosing liberty!

Young Americans for Liberty

Young Americans for Liberty is rooted in the defense of liberty and provides a structure on campuses across the United States to learn and exercise their God given rights.  YAL's "Win at the Door" strategy provides the students an outlet for identifying worthy candidates in their area to support.  Last election cycle hundreds of YAL students knocked on over 1 million doors and helped put 35 strong liberty candidates over the top, in local elections.  You can join in and become a part of the winning strategy.

The less things politicians control, the less it matters who controls politicians

Foundation for Individual Rights Education

FIRE’s mission is to defend and sustain the individual rights of students and faculty members at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, freedom of association, due process, legal equality, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience—the essential qualities of liberty. FIRE educates students, faculty, alumni, trustees, and the public about the threats to these rights on our campuses, and provides the means to preserve them.

FIRE was founded in 1999 by University of Pennsylvania professor Alan Charles Kors and Boston civil liberties attorney Harvey Silverglate after the overwhelming response to their 1998 book The Shadow University: The Betrayal Of Liberty On America’s Campuses.
