Yesterday, May 6, 2014, the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) organization announced their plans for their 6th annual national convention. The convention will occur from July 30, 2014 through August 2, 2014 in Arlington, Virginia and attendance is by invitation-only - participants must apply to attend.

YAL has over 162,000 active youth involved in their organization encompassing more than 500 chapters across the nation. The organization works to instill in its members as well as influence elected officials toward individual responsibility and less government force. The organization offers a comprehensive and impressive reading list for college-age Americans to read.

The national convention will be an intense, four-day training event bringing in some of the best-known names in the liberty movement. Last year's even had 303 attendees and this year the group is expecting in excess of 350 at George Mason University. Approved applicants will only need to spend $30 which will pay for registration, lodging, food and training materials. Applicants will need to pay their way to get to Alexandria, Virginia.

Today, May 7, 2014, the group arranged a breakfast with U.S. Senator Rand Paul in Arlington, Virginia and Friday will host a debate workshop in Arlington, Virginia. Today, the Citrus College chapter in California posted their Free Speech Wall, where students could write anything they wanted. The wall was the brainchild of Vinny Sinapi-Riddle who had been told last year by a campus administrator he could only collect signed petitions in the college's 'free speech zone'.

Other events the organization has scheduled is a campaign management workshop, public speaking workshop, a television workshop and women's leadership training. The organization is on the forefront of training young Americans to foster a society based more on freedom and voluntarism, than the use of government force to carry forward the needs of the nation.
