Young Leaders Converge in D.C. for YAF Conference

More than 400 students from around the country traveled to the Nation’s Capital the first week of August to attend the Young America’s Foundation’s 28th annual National Conservative Student Conference.

Young leaders from 39 states and 180 colleges and universities were eager to hear from prominent Americans and leaders in the conservative movement, including former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, best-selling author Michelle Malkin, and NRA CEO & Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre.

Students were also equipped with activism strategies, from memorializing 9-11 to exposing divisive, race-based programs on campus. Livia Romano, a student from San Diego, Calif., shared her thoughts about the conference: “I can say with confidence that never in my life have I experienced such concentration and invigoration concerning the conservative cause.” Emily Bongiovanni of George Mason University said, “I have found my niche at Young America’s Foundation and will pursue a career in the conservative movement.”
