University of Minnesota, Twin Cities builds CFACT chapter membership ranks

An interested student signs up to join the CFACT club.

CFACT at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities initiated a chapter recruitment drive earlier in the semester to grow the membership ranks.

Club president Kirby Gibson led the tabling effort where students had the chance to spin the “Green New Wheel.” The Green New Wheel is a game where students spin a wheel where if they land on the Green New Deal (spaces with Biden or AOC’s faces on them) they lose, while if they land on “Free Market Energy,” they win.

CFACT activists interacted with dozens of interested students and set the club up well for future success and growth.

“It’s always fun to bring out the Green New Wheel game, especially at a campus like this where there are socialist groups tabling right across from us,” said CFACT National Field Coordinator Bob Knee. “Recruiting students and annoying socialists, you love to see it!”

The CFACT club on campus is planning several impactful speaking events, including ones discussing pipeline and mining projects, climate change, and other issues.
