On Alumni For Liberty: “I think Alumni For Liberty (AFL) is going to fill a valuable niche within the liberty movement, mainly by providing an outlet for working professionals to stay engaged in advocating for a freer society. As the AFL network expands, it will enable collaboration between individuals and organizations to better accomplish personal and professional goals. The future of the liberty movement is bright and I’m excited to be a part of it through AFL.”
