  • HobbyLobbyYoung 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 and 17. 

    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 soon!

    Raj Kannappan is the Program Officer for Young Americans for Freedom.
