MCLEAN, VA., August 3, 2022 – Students For Liberty (SFL) is proud to announce five-term Congressman Justin Amash will join us as one of the featured presenters at this year’s LibertyCon International opening night on Friday, Oct. 14, 2022.
Amash served as the US Representative for Michigan’s 3rd congressional district from 2011 to 2021. Originally a Republican, he officially switched to Libertarian in April 2020, becoming the party’s first (and so far, only) member of Congress. He started a short-lived campaign for the party’s presidential nomination later that same year.
As a long time “small-L” libertarian, Amash was the only Republican supporting the 2019 impeachment of President Donald Trump. Earlier this year in an interview where he separated himself even further from his former colleagues, he described Kevin McCarthy as “conniving and fundamentally dishonest.” More recently in critiquing Democrats, he tweeted “The Biden administration now needs to release all persons ‘held hostage’ or ‘wrongfully detained’ in the United States pursuant to unconstitutional federal cannabis laws.”
Students For Liberty, the largest pro-liberty student organization in the world with students active in 117 countries, is very excited to announce the participation of Justin Amash at the return of their flagship event LibertyCon international. The event will be held the weekend of Oct. 14-15 at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, FL. Registration has already begun at LibertyCon.com and will continue as we announce more speakers and presenters in the weeks to come.
