US law enforcement is concerned that strong encryption will make it easier for criminals and terrorists to hide their activities. Many believe that the government should have a back door into private systems. However, any attempt to weaken encryption means making users more vulnerable to malicious hackers, identity thieves, and repressive governments. There’s no such thing as a backdoor that only the government can use. Defending the right to encryption would allow Internet services to flourish, make users more safe and secure online, and allow them to communicate and associate in private. (more…)


Students For Liberty is pleased to announce that applications for the 2016-2017 Campus Coordinator class are now open!

SFL’s Campus Coordinator Program is the premier program for actively advancing the ideas of free markets and individual liberty on college campuses. SFL Campus Coordinators (CCs) are the face of liberty on their college campuses. CCs are the on-the ground activists, empowering students in their areas to defend the ideas of liberty. This highly competitive program seeks out strong student leaders and community organizers to spread the ideas of a free society from the grassroots level by starting new pro-liberty student groups, organizing events to promote the ideas of liberty, resourcing student groups and identifying and mentoring other pro-liberty students.

Last month, SFL announced that current students can apply for sponsorship to our fall Charity Poker Tournaments. Our tournament in New York was a smashing success, with several students in attendance thanks to the generosity of our donors. However, the scholarships aren’t quite closed yet! We still have one last poker tournament in San Francisco on October 22nd. If you are a current student or Alumni For Liberty member and would like to play free of charge, please fill out the application below.

SFL’s Poker Tournaments are by far the swankiest donor events of the year. Apply below for a night of good fun and networking with the West Coast’s top libertarian leaders.


In an attempt to better share our current activities with our network, SFL is beginning an SFL Around the World blog post series.  At the beginning of each month, each region will post an update to their regional blog page to share their current activities.  Please stay tuned for more updates next month!

September was a very busy for Students For Liberty in North America!  As Regional Conference season rapidly OctATW1approaches, we’ve recently announced the Virginia and North California Regional Conferences to finalize our lineup of 24 conferences.  This year, SFL has a variety of speakers and topics that we hope you’ll check out this fall.  Among several themed conferences, students in Oklahoma are hosting an anarcho-capitalism conference and students in New Mexico are hosting a drug policy reform-focused conference.

Campus Coordinators were also busy this month hosting leadership fora in several areas.  Students in Alabama, Florida, California, Texas, and several other areas hostedhalf-day round table discussions about the best practices in student organizing, coordination among campuses, and upcoming fall conferences and events, among other topics.  Leadership fora have been critical to SFL’s previous success and we’re pleased to have hosted several productive fora this fall.
