Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will be speaking – for the first time ever – at the Tenth Annual International Students For Liberty Conference!

 

You know him as the man who filibustered for nearly 13 hours to try and block John Brennan’s confirmation as CIA director, showing a profound dedication to the preservation of American civil liberties. He’s also been a staunch advocate of criminal justice reform, an opponent of the out-of-control executive, and a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve and U.S. monetary policy.

Now, he’s gearing up to oppose superhawk John Bolton’s likely appointment as Secretary of State.

Here’s a bit more about Senator Paul:Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul, M.D. is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope.

A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician – not a career politician – Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference.

We’re honored to have him at this year’s International Conference. Register now before it’s too late!!

You’re probably familiar with CrossFit – the wildly popular fitness regimen currently practiced in over 13,000 affiliated gyms across the world.

What you may not know is that CrossFit’s founder – Greg Glassman – describes himself as a “rabid libertarian.”

With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that…

Greg Glassman – CEO of CrossFit – will speak at the Tenth Annual ISFLC!

Glassman has used the wildly successful CrossFit brand to leverage his own libertarian ideas on many occasions.

Whether it’s highlighting the damaging effects of the minimum wage on Twitter:

Or espousing the benefits of CrossFit’s decentralized business model as an example of free market principles at work:

Check out ReasonTV’s 2013 interview with Glassman by watching the video below:

As well as addressing ISFLC17 on our main stage, Glassman has also arranged a free CrossFit session for ISFLC attendees on the Saturday morning of the conference! If you’ve never tried CrossFit before and are curious, be sure to check it out!

As this is our 10th anniversary year, we’re aiming for an even bigger and better ISFLC than ever before. We’ll be bringing back some of the best speakers from past years and planning some surprises you won’t want to miss!

World-renowned social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has been announced as the first confirmed speaker for the 2017 International Students For Liberty Conference (#ISFLC17).

Haidt

Jonathan Haidt

Now in its tenth year, ISFLC17 represents the unity of the libertarian student movement and will bring together old friends and new faces for a weekend of learning and activism. The conference will take place from February 17-19, 2017 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington DC. Registration is open here!

Haidt is an engaging figure for young people interested in the ideas of liberty, thanks to his passion for free expression and open-mindedness. He played a key role in establishing and promoting Heterodox Academy: a politically diverse group of academics from various disciplines who are concerned with a lack of viewpoint diversity in American higher education.

He also co-authored a highly-praised 2015 article for The Atlantic, titled “The Coddling of the American Mind.” The article argues that protecting college students from words and ideas they don’t like (in the name of emotional wellbeing) is disastrous for both their education and mental health.

Students For Liberty looks forward to welcoming Haidt in February and to announcing many more high-profile speakers in the coming months. In the past, ISFLC has attracted big names in the liberty movement and beyond, including Ron Paul, Pussy Riot, and Governor Gary Johnson. This year will be no exception.

Attendees can also look forward to a fun, engaging conference experience beyond the amazing speakers. There’s plenty of time to socialize and network with fellow liberty-lovers as well as ample opportunity to check out our in-house libertarian art exhibition, the Ama-Gi Art Show. Then there’s the Awards Dinner, movie screenings, after-parties, the exhibitor hall…and much more!

As in past years, the registration price for the conference will increase as we closer to February. For now, it’s just $20 to register as a student, but prices will increase on November 1st. So make sure and register early to take advantage of lower prices!
