On Students For Liberty: “While there are many ways to become exposed to the principles of liberty, SFL provides a forum for students to take their own personal beliefs one step further. I first discovered SFL when I was initially exploring the liberty movement and it was an invaluable resource as I worked to grow my own campus organization. I know first hand the power SFL wields in promoting liberty, one school at a time.”
