You will be surprised by what happened Monday night at the University of Minnesota. With the help of Young America’s Foundation, this could be your campus!

A packed hall of eager young people turned out to engage in an academic program on the value of America’s free market system and the importance of free speech.

You see, once again, America’s #1 conservative campus lecture program from Young America’s Foundation brought Ben Shapiro to a campus that was devoid of conservative ideas.

Despite the university’s attempts to isolate Ben’s lecture—part of YAF’s Logan Family Lecture Series—on a remote part of campus and under the threat of a lawsuit from Young America’s Foundation, students embraced conservative ideas on this campus which is a notorious hotbed of liberalism.

No students marched out of the hall in protest.

No students interrupted the speaker.

No students booed the conservative ideas that were being taught to the 400+ students in attendance.

What’s more, the reach of this lecture went far beyond the lecture hall.

More than 16,000 watched the event on YAF’s best-in-class live stream.

Fox & Friends ran a lead story on the event.

The Associated Press blasted a report on the event to affiliates across the country.

Young America’s Foundation is just getting started!

We still have Ben Shapiro slated to speak at many more campuses this semester. In addition, Young America’s Foundation will also be bringing Vice President Dick Cheney, Art Laffer, Jesse Watters, Dinesh D’Souza, Carly Fiorina, Andrew Klavan, Dr. Harvey Mansfield, Steve Forbes, Christina Sommers, and Bay Buchanan to campuses across the country.

No other group can match the number of events organized by Young America’s Foundation on high school and college campuses.

We continue to book events at a record pace!

In fact, in just the last week, we received more than 800 requests from students to bring in a conservative speaker to their campus!
