(Washington Examiner) – After nine years of establishing a national movement of more than 300,000 young, freedom-fighting activists, Young Americans for Liberty has launched its newest campaign, Operation Win at the Door, with the primary objective of mobilizing thousands of college students to elect principled, pro-liberty candidates to state government through grassroots campaigning. The announcement comes after YAL’s sister organization received status as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit, making it legal for activists to engage in unlimited lobbying and promotion of liberty candidates.
After years of being classified as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, incapable of political lobbying, YAL is unshackling itself from the strict rules and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service that previously outlawed campaigning and educating voters directly. The freedom-fighting army has, aptly received more freedom, making the organization a political force to be reckoned with in 2018 and beyond.
Operation Win at the Door gives the ideals of liberty the publicity it deserves and narrows its focus to electing candidates specifically to state legislatures. YAL is looking to endorse candidates who promise (among other things) to fight for free speech, restore privacy via the Fourth Amendment, cut high tax rates, and defend the Constitution.
