The Advocates is happy to share this article by Blayne Bennett from Students for Liberty. If you’re a student activist, or a non-student with an interest in furthering the Campus Liberty Movement, sign up for one of SFL’s Regional Conferences. Find the conference nearest you and register today.
So, you lured students to your table with the World’s Smallest Political Quiz. Now what?
Kevin Duewel, a Students For Liberty Campus Coordinator, recommends, “Provide ample literature to hand out after people take the quiz. The quiz is a great way to grab people off the street or from the halls, and to get them to talk with you. But if you don't have anything to give them, or anything substantial to say to them after the two minutes it took for them to take the quiz, then you are missing out on a golden opportunity.”
One way to easily fill up your table is by requesting a Tabling Kit from SFL. Students are a diverse group, and something that attracts one type of person to liberty may not work on another type, which is why SFL provides an assortment of resources to use on campus.
Another way to keep newly identified libertarians interested in your club is by attending one of Students For Liberty’s Regional Conferences as a group. Conferences are happening all across the US this fall in 9 different cities.
The Advocates for Self Government will be speaking at several of the conferences, including the Texas Regional Conference at the University of Texas – Austin, the Southeast Regional Conference at Kennesaw State University, and the Southern California Conference at Pepperdine University.
At these conferences, you will hear from leaders in the Liberty Movement about how to advocate for liberty and you will have a chance to network with dozens of pro-liberty students. There is also a student panel at each of the conferences so you can learn from students what works to spread the message of liberty on campus.
Students For Liberty has numerous resources for your student organization to help develop the libertarians newly identified by Operation: Politically Homeless kits into active club members.
