AFF is growing across the country. This winter, chapters in Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Raleigh organized events aimed at connecting young professionals with a certain penchant for freedom.
AFF’s brand-new chapter in Raleigh, North Carolina launched on March 13th with a debate over an upcoming constitutional amendment on marriage. 45 people attended AFF-Raleigh’s very first event, which was coordinated by local committee members Joe Coletti, Jenna Robinson, Marissa Farrell, and Fergus Hodgson. AFF-Raleigh is building a community of young professionals who love liberty who live in the Raleigh and Research Triangle region. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved with this new group. And be sure to check AFF-Raleigh’s page on our website for upcoming events.
AFF-Pittsburgh has continued its long run of excellent events for that city’s liberty community, including an event with the Pennsylvania chapter of the NFIB. They discussed how government regulation is impacting job creation in the economy. You can read more about this event here.
Additionally, AFF-Minneapolis continues to move forward with programming for conservatives and libertarians in the North Star State. Chapter co-chairmen Ebani Boutlier and Scott Thompson have developed a strong group in their city, and held an event on March 28th on the question of whether voters should be required to present identification at the polling place. Details on this event are here.
Lastly, AFF-Chicago also held an event on March 28th on how statism impacts culture and what free market advocates can do to better address common myths about free enterprise and liberty among the general public. Larry Kauffman from the American Culture Institute spoke on this and other ideas. More information is here.
Events are already planned for this spring Atlanta (its first), Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, and Pittsburgh. If you are interested in participating in an AFF chapter in any of these cities or New York or Nashville, please contact Richard Lorenc.
