Some students want to “get out the vote.”

They are happy to maintain the status quo: the “choice” between parties that mirror each other in so many ways.

Students For Liberty wants to change all that. We want to disrupt the status quo. It’s time to highlight the alternative:

Liberty.

And our campus disorientation strike teams aim to do just that.

SFL’s “Get Out The Liberty” campaign is offering activism grants of up to $250 for students with creative ideas about how to spread the message of a free and prosperous society on their campus. We want to attract new students to our movement: ones who are sick and tired of the current election cycle and demand an alternative.

Rather than “getting out the vote”, we at SFL want to focus on Getting Out The Liberty.

Stuck for inspiration? Throughout our time as an organization, SFL activists have devised innovative and exciting activism events that attract new students to the cause of liberty, including:

Students For Liberty is pleased to present the first EsLibertad Annual Report. Estudiantes por la Libertad is the regional SFL body for Spanish-speaking Latin America. Read the report in Spanish here.

Here’s the report’s introduction from outgoing Eslibertad Chairwoman Milica Pandzic:

Screen Shot 2016-08-21 at 12.16.47 PMNever in Latin American history has there been a generation like this. We are a generation that wants to be free and knows the way to achieve it. We are a  generation that, despite the distances, barriers, and borders, has managed to organize itself under the same flag. We are a generation that knows freedom is not only an ideal to be defended, but a real-world philosophy and a feeling that moves us.

Today, this passion for liberty has inspired hundreds of students throughout the continent. The organization that was born three years ago with only 30 leaders has grown to 300 leaders across 18 countries in the region. However, let’s not limit ourselves by looking at numbers when we can find faces. These are the faces that are changing Latin America.

Providing a platform of support, action, and empowerment is what distinguishes Estudiantes por la Libertad in the Latin American libertarian movement. We are committed to be the youth who change their present and build their future. That is what overcoming the fear of freedom is all about: being a face for  hopeful optimism and executing great things that show the world what we can achieve by being free. (more…)

Are we on the brink of The Vapour Revolution?

The answer is a resounding “yes,” according to a new Reason Foundation working paper of the same name. After years of improvement and adoption, the relatively new technology of e-cigarettes and vaporizers is set to improve global health drastically over the next few decades. That is, so long as the World Health Organization — and other regulatory health bodies around the world — don’t get their way.

E_Cigarettes,_Ego,_Vaporizers_and_Box_Mods_(17679064871)Co-authored by Julian Morris, vice president of research at Reason Foundation, and Dr. Amir Ullah Khan, a noted Indian economist, the paper highlights how innovation and competition in a relatively unregulated market has led to the development of vapes that are more effective, safer, and less costly. Such innovation has been far more rapid where vape products are regulated as consumer products than where they are regulated more heavily (in a similar manner to cigarettes and other tobacco products).

In these areas, vape products are attracting millions of smokers to switch from cigarettes. Considered 95 percent safer than smoking, vaping enables smokers to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.  (more…)

mc2802_is_lg_unconvention_3-2016_FINAL-08What is The UnConvention? In many ways, it’s whatever you make it.

Hosted by 92Y, Public Radio International, and Mic, The UnConvention invites young people to join a global conversation about what is at stake in the U.S. election for the country’s largest living generation: millennials.

It’s a multi-faceted project taking place across broadcast and social media, via live events and community meet-ups, and driven by the voices and concerns most relevant for young people around the world today.

As part of the project, the organizers will be running a private Facebook group of influencers that will help to shape the content of the larger initiative.

This select group of 400 people from the U.S. and abroad, ages 18-34, will put the ideas, issues, and opinions of young adults front and center in the U.S. election. You’ll be part of a global conversation and help lead The UnConvention including 10 weeks of social posting, radio and web coverage, and live events organized by Public Radio International, Mic and 92Y in New York.

You’ll be the first to share quizzes and polls testing what people know and think about issues. You may even be featured in news coverage on the radio, on social media, or on stage.
