Students For Liberty values our community of supporters from all over the world. However, in light of the current health climate, we deeply regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel this year’s scheduled LibertyCon on April 3-5, 2020 in Washington, DC.
Due to the ongoing concern and spread of Covid-19, many academic institutions are closing, corporate leaders are halting travel for their staff, and the threat of quarantines is increasing exponentially.
Safety for our attendees and staff is always our first priority and LibertyCon brings together over 1,000 people from around the world each year. Due to all of these factors, and the uncertainty of what the next few weeks will bring, we came to the conclusion that it is not possible for us to host this annual conference successfully.
If you already registered, your registration fee will be refunded to you. If you booked a hotel room, that will also be refunded to you. While we can’t reimburse any of your transportation costs, you should check with your airline, rental car company, or Amtrak if you are either eligible for a refund or for a free ticket change to a later date. Many travel providers have recently started offering similar waivers of rebooking fees.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected].
We hope that you will all join us at our next LibertyCon in DC, happening on February 5-7, 2021!
Sincerely & For Liberty,
Your friends at Students For Liberty
