As our quarter finally began, Western Washington University YAL was out getting plenty of sign ups! We were fortunate enough to be located to similar liberty groups on campus during our infofair, such as the Western Libertarians, SSDP and even local supporters of the Libertarian Party.
We of course didn't handout any material for the presidential race, nor endorse and policy or candidates. That was a common issue we ran into however, with people confused about our 501c(3) status. But after clearing up that issue, we had plenty of great conversations on the drug war, the NSA and Edward Snowden since his movie came out that same week.
We were also placed next to the Socialist Alternative group on campus, but instead of making enemies, I spoke with the president about a possible debate we could plan, and working together for activism on the war on drugs, over-incarceration of our prisons and ending foreign wars which also drew people from the general crowd involved in SA to our table. It's easy to be enemies, but its beneficial to work towards common ground and issues we all can agree on.
Last year our chapter won “Political Club of the Year” through our activism and we plan on doing it again.
