2015 was an exciting year for liberty fighters in North America. Over 120 Campus Coordinators joined our program this year, 21 Regional Conferences we hosted across the U.S. and Canada, and thousands of students were reached through on-campus activism events. Here is a highlight of some of our most notable students from this year.

Victoria Dennis from Central Michigan University has been a Campus Coordinator with SFL for two years, and has been instrumental in the success of a YAL chapter at her school. She’s also been working hard to establish a presence on campus for the Liberty in North Korea student organization, which raises awareness and funding for people who wish to escape the oppressive regime of North Korea.

Kevin Suarez is a student at De Anza College where he hosted the Northern California Regional Conference this fall. In addition to a successful conference, Kevin has also been working hard to establish a liberty presence at his school, working with other groups and clubs in his area. Kevin has worked with the Silicone Valley Freedom Project and his schools Filipino Student Alliance.

Emily Reynolds and Lynnane Lowry are Campus Coordinators at Florida Gulf Coast University where they have been working tirelessly toward exposing students in their area to the ideas of liberty. They’ve been incredibly active on campus, hosting unique tabling events and regular meetings, and were successful at getting over three dozen students from their school to attend SFL regional conferences this fall!
