SFLFocus_FBAd (1)You know how difficult it can be to communicate the pro-liberty perspective on popular policy debates. Even in areas like tech freedom, the stats aren’t in our favor — as of last spring, for instance, only 56% of millennials in the U.S. felt positively about Edward Snowden.

It’s not too late to change these perceptions. With a dedicated push – and a little focus – we can make the libertarian perspective heard on these issues and more. SFL’s spring Focus Series is here to help.

Each conference will feature an in-depth look at one policy area that is front-and-center for young people today. From Tech Freedom and the overreach of the NSA, to the growing Free Market Environmentalist movement, this series is designed to have something for everyone in the pro-liberty network. So get excited, keep an eye out for speaker announcements soon, and…

We’re just three weeks away from the largest libertarian student gathering of the year, and the big names keep rolling in! I’m excited to announce that Gov. Gary Johnson and Julie Borowski will be joining us at ISFLC16.

He is a candidate for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination in the 2016 election.

At ISFLC16, Julie will be sharing the secrets to her success, offering tips and tricks for young people interested in making a career in the commentary world.

CWW-hU_WcAADunOOkay, you’re totally pumped about the liberty movement. You go to conferences like ISFLC and other freedom-inspired events. You may even have a blog or two.

Suddenly it dawns on you to consider grad school. You know, get a PhD and really get some cred teaching at universities or writing policy papers at think tanks. But what do you really know about grad school? Which ones are right for you? What departments are freedom friendly? How do you apply? What about funding? Finally, the two most important questions: what will grad school be like, and are you even right for grad school in the first place?

Yes, plenty of questions that need to be answered, or at least considered. Fortunately if you’re attending this year’s ISFLC, you’re in luck. On Friday, February 26, The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) will be running a lunch session, “Is Grad School Right for You?”
