Students For Liberty originally began in North America back in 2008. Despite growing into a vast international organization since then, our North American programs remain a key part of our efforts towards creating a freer and more prosperous society. Our passionate team of 123 Campus Coordinators work hard to organize their own Regional Conferences and activism events with the help of our leadership retreats and various grant programs. Students also grapple with advanced libertarian theory in our Virtual Reading Groups.

Some highlights of 2016 include our nationwide Deep Web screenings, the 2016 Campus Coordinator Retreat, the Get Out The Liberty campaign, and our ongoing Speak Freely Advocate Program.
