Liberian Students for liberty sprang out from the efforts of young Liberian to stand up against negative heritage of autocracy and totalitarianism that has plagued the country for so long. These young individuals are dedicated to speeding the ideas of human dignity, individual and economic freedom and the ability to pursue one’s happiness without intimidation. Liberian Students for Liberty therefore provides a platform for Liberian students to generate and share ideas that will lead to prosperous and liberated Liberia.
Students for Liberty is a 501© (3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a unified, student-driven forum of support for students and student organizations dedicated to liberty.
What Liberty Means to Students for Liberty (SFL)
Students for liberty is an organization that supports liberty. SFL does not dictate the foundations upon which individuals justify their belief in liberty. Rather, students for liberty embraces the diversity of Justifications for liberty and encourages debate and discourse on the differing philosophies that underlie liberty. What students for liberty endorses are the principles that comprise liberty:
Economic freedom to choose how to provide for one’s life;
Social freedom to choose how to live one’s life; and
Intellectual and academic freedom
Theory of Social change
SFL exists to empower students to become leaders and agents of change in their communities, particularly within the university. Students are the principal leaders, crafting our strategy, and running programs to help fellow students. All new SFL leaders, weather executive Board members, campus coordinators, Charter Team members and so forth, go through a vigorous training program designed to teach them how to become an effective leader for liberty both generally and specifically for their role. As part of this training, all new leaders are given 100+ pages SFL Handbook that covers everything from what it means to be a leader for liberty to effective communication strategies.
The SFL Model
SFL is not a top down, chapter based, or membership organization. Instead SFL functions as a network of pro-liberty students from a wide diversity o locations and backgrounds.
We work with a diversity of student organizations across the many ideological positions within the philosophy of liberty.. These include the campus Young Americans for Liberty, Students for Liberty, College Libertarians, free speech clubs, small “I” libertarian association, economics club, objectivist society, Austrian Economics reading group, Students for individual liberty, and any other group that support an idea or case of liberty.
