Young America's Foundation is excited to announce Penn State; the University of Tennessee, Knoxville; The University of Arizona, and Palm Beach Atlantic University as the initial
Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapters that will host the
Firing Up Freedom Tour this fall semester! These particular
groups were selected from a pool of chapters that submitted
proposals describing their ability to host such an event and their
willingness to perform the work necessary to recruit their peers to
the Conservative Movement.
The tour will feature Kate Obenshain, author of
"Divider-in-Chief: The Fraud of Hope and Change" and an alumna of
Young America's Foundation. Kate is a motivational speaker who has
addressed numerous student audiences on topics such as
education, free speech, and political correctness. At each stop,
she will deliver a lecture that will energize YAF
activists to boldly promote principles such as limited
government, individual freedom, and a strong national defense.
Additionally, as part of the tour, a Young America's Foundation
staff member will join each YAF chapter following Kate's lecture to
provide hands-on guidance on campus activism. This guidance may
involve assisting the chapter with tabling on campus, distributing
or posting flyers, and writing op-eds, among other projects.
The first stop of the tour will be Penn State on September 16
The second stop will be the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
on September 23 and 24.
The tour will also be going to The University of Arizona in
Tucson on September 30 and October 1 and Palm Beach Atlantic
University in West Palm Beach, Florida on October 7 and 8.
Stay tuned for the remaining selected YAF chapters
