AFF San Francisco officially launched with a Happy Hour on Thursday, April 23, 2015. 40 liberty-minded locals gathered at the Slate SF lounge to toast liberty and celebrate AFF’s expansion to the West Coast. Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District – an historic and iconic cultural neighborhood – Slate SF provided an ideal setting to discuss and celebrate America’s history, exceptionalism and future.
The evening began with a welcome from Paul Doherty, AFF-San Francisco’s Chapter Leader, followed by remarks from Sally Pipes, President and CEO of the Pacific Research Institute.
Sally discussed PRI’s mission and recent work, and then spoke about Obamacare and its alternatives. She concluded that young people need to have an active voice for liberty in order to make real social change.
Kathryn Shelton is Director of Chapter Advancement for America’s Future Foundation.
