Year of Youth: Young Americans for Liberty's Plan to Continue the R3VOLution in 2012Submitted by Bonnie Kristian on Thu, 01/13/2011 - 16:45
YoY is an effort to identify, train, and mobilize thousands of youth activists for a massive wave of youth campaigns across America in 2012.
With your help, we will organize an army of principled activists to join our cause, and make 2012 the year that the world realizes the youth of America is not apathetic, indifferent, and ignorant, but rather energetic, impassioned, and informed.
But that involves more than just saying we're active -- it means getting involved and actually doing the hard work necessary to make it happen.
Here's what you can do right now to help this project get off the ground:
If you're already a member of YAL, visit the brand new Year of Youth website and sign up at the bottom with your name and email.
If you're not a member of YAL, go here first to become one.
Once you sign up to learn more about YoY, you will receive an email with more information on how to help make Project 2012 become a reality. Make sure to encourage your friends to sign up as well: word of mouth is the best publicity.
To kick off this project, YAL is also asking for your help to pitch in and contribute any amount of money you can afford. The initial online fundraising goal is set for $25,000, so we can begin to identify and train liberty activists, candidates, and campaign managers immediately.
To make your dollar stretch even further, a very generous YAL donor is ready to match every contribution dollar for dollar you donate today. This will multiply our kickoff budget to $50,000!
From there, stay tuned, as we will keep you updated on our progress and activity. There is a lot of work to be done if we are to be successful in 2012, so be ready to buckle down and dig in.
Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic endeavor. Together, we will make 2012 a year that will change American politics forever.
