Young Americans for Liberty lets students express free speech

Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), a group on campus that promotes all liberties, held an event for students to speak their minds last Thursday.

From 3 — 5 p.m., Shippensburg University sophomore and YAL founder Lane Alleman had a gigantic beach ball out on the quad. Students could write something they wanted to say on the ball and pick up some free gifts, like buttons and keychains.

Students were encouraged to exercise their freedom of speech.

YAL supports liberties of all kinds. Alleman said SU’s chapter is focused on freedom of speech and personal freedoms.

He wants students to be aware of how important the First Amendment is.

Alleman says for next semester he hopes to have the group be more active on campus.

Alleman also aims to have more members join. He said, “Next semester we are coming on full swing.” Alleman has high hopes for the club. “We want to make liberties win.” he said.
