Young America’s Foundation (YAF), thanks to the generous support of Fred Allen, is excited to announce that YAF will be the exclusive home of New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro’s campus tour for the 2018-2019 school year.
Now more than ever, conservative ideas are in demand on college campuses. And despite the Left’s best efforts, Shapiro continues to reach capacity campus audiences and millions more online. These powerful events are the result of combining Young America’s Foundation’s logistical expertise and financial support with Shapiro’s concise, compelling conservative message. It is a message young people are eager to hear.
In fact, the Foundation has never seen such a demand to host a speaker among students! Due to this demand, Ben Shapiro is already booked for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year.
Many of the groups which have hosted Shapiro on campus—whether it is one of the Foundation’s own Young Americans for Freedom chapters or another conservative club—were able to bring Shapiro to speak through the generous support of Young America’s Foundation’s supporters. One such supporter, Fred Allen, spearheaded Ben’s first lecture tour, and we are grateful for his continued support in underwriting the fall component of the 2018-2019 series.
Because of Mr. Allen’s support, many students who have wanted to host Ben Shapiro, but lacked necessary campus funding, will have the ability to do so. Young America’s Foundation and our vast student network will continue to plan Shapiro’s campus events using our time-tested process to ensure each lecture is a success.
“I am thrilled to partner with Young America’s Foundation to visit more campuses and pierce the liberal group-think bubble” said Ben Shapiro. “I welcome students who disagree with me to attend each and every event and ask challenging questions.”
Ron Robinson, president of Young America’s Foundation shared his enthusiasm for the continued lecture series: “We are proud to partner with Ben Shapiro to ensure more students have the opportunity to hear conservative ideas from a leading conservative mind. Too many young people become liberal by osmosis, and Ben will ensure increasing numbers of students will receive a more balanced education.”
Since 2015, Young America’s Foundation has organized more than 35 campus lectures featuring Ben Shapiro at school’s across the country. Most recently, YAF successfully hosted Shapiro at the University of California, Berkeley despite incessant leftist obstacles to derail the scheduled speech, threats of violence from antifa protesters, and an openly hostile administration.
