On Saturday CFACT had the privilege to sponsor the Alabama Young Americans for Liberty State Convention. Students from all across the south eastern states, including Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida, descended on Auburn University to take part in the convention. Many of them stopped by the CFACT table, and they were very interested in what CFACT stood for.
Many of the students at the convention were very interested in protecting the environment, but they had never been able to find an organization that believed in both protecting the environment and respecting the free market principles. CFACT’s unique message of using the free market to conserve the environment resonated with them.
Dozens of students were interested in CFACT and signed up to be part of our mailing list, and several said they are excited to start up CFACT chapters at our schools. One student, named Alex said “this is exactly what I have been looking for! Protecting the environment is important, but I have never been able to find an organization that fits my beliefs. It is amazing that you guys use free market principles to help protect the earth.” It is important for CFACT to spread its unique message of free market environmentalism, because there are many other people out there who are waiting to use the free market to help the environment, just like Alex.
