Sunday, July 9th Students For Liberty held our first SFL Day of Service! Our #SFLGivesBack project gave our student leaders across the United States and Canada the chance to come together and show the value of civil society! The event took place in six major U.S. cities – Anchorage, Columbus, Salt Lake City, Madison, Lubbock, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
When the event was over, our student leaders had the opportunity to feed hundreds in need, as well as pass out cold water and toiletries. We had a wonderful time helping others, and this experience serviced as an important reminder for us that it’s necessary for young libertarians to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk.

On July 19-22, Students For Liberty attended the “world’s largest gathering of free minds,” FreedomFest X at the Paris Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many of our student leaders, we able to arrive a day early to attend the Atlas Society annual Atlas Summit and had a wonderful time! Our student ambassadors had a wonderful time introducing attendees to Students For Liberty’s mission, meeting speakers, and experiencing everything FreedomFest had to offer!
We had the pleasure of meeting many of FreedomFest’s attendees at our booth. We really enjoyed getting to know so many liberty-minded people! We passed out our stickers, literature, pens, and other swag, but our “Less Marx More Mises” t-shirts definitely got the most attention! Congressman Thomas Massie and Congressman Justin Amash both showed their support for the #LessMarxMoreMises movement!
Students For Liberty’s CEO, Dr. Wolf von Laer, was also busy spreading the ideas of Liberty! Wolf gave two presentations during FreedomFest, “The Student Movement for Liberty: A Case for Optimism” and “How Young People Make the World a Freer Place” with student leaders Natalie Bao Tram Le and Savannah Lindquist. He also spoke on an Atlas Society panel about the “Future of Objectivism.”
Students For Liberty’s Regional Conferences are completed planned and executed by our student leaders in their respective regions. These Regional Conferences provide liberty-minded students with a special opportunity to network, hear from distinguished speakers, meet link-minded students, and develop the skills need to advocate for a freer future!
