Dear College Democrats,

This election has left progressives and liberals feeling scared about the prospects for America’s future. Many libertarians share your concerns about the direction the country is headed, and we at Students For Liberty are no exception.

Considering the widespread outrage at the results of the election, we want to make this clear: if you are a College Democrat (or Democrat-affiliated) group and share our concerns on certain issues, we are more than willing to work with you and provide you with any resources you need.

After this polarizing election, we’re taking a stand to advocate for people and education over politics and division. You’re invited to become part of this much-needed conversation by joining the SFL network. Pro-liberty students and liberals/progressives share similar perspectives on many different issues, and we’d love to support your activism in areas such as:

  • Police brutality
  • Criminal justice reform
  • Defending press freedom and the right to privacy
  • Anti corruption initiatives
  • Freedom of speech and expression

We provide grants, training, activism resources, and access to a network of pro-liberty students not just in the United States, but all around the world.

Whatever your issue of choice is, we’re here to help make sure pro-liberty beliefs, whether expressed by libertarians or liberals/progressives, are represented on college campuses across the country (and world)! We’ll never subject you to a purity test or demand allegiance to any particular candidate or approach. As long as your message is pro-liberty, we’re more than happy to help.

Since we’re not a chapter-based organization, College Democrats groups can retain their status while still taking advantage of resources from SFL. We want to build coalitions with student groups who share aspects of our vision for a better society, and we want to provide student activists with the support they need to act on their frustrations following the election. Working together, we can bring about positive change. Are you with us?



Sincerely & For Liberty, 

SFL North America
