The Rutgers chapter of Young Americans for Liberty held its first meeting this past Wednesday.According to their mission statement, Young Americans for Liberty aims to promote and educate the students of Rutgers University to the ideas of liberty, peace, the constitution and free markets through activism and intellectual dialogue with the general student body.Andrea Vacchiano, the president of the club, said that Young Americans for Liberty supports drug reform, prison reform and small government economic policies.“We try to educate our peers about libertarian principles through activism events and hosting speakers, and we also try to make some pro-liberty changes within Rutgers,” the School of Arts and Sciences junior said.One such pro-liberty change advocated by Young Americans for Liberty is the reform of Rutgers' policies on public speech, said Aviv Khavich, a School of Engineering junior and the group's vice president.Khavich said that the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) rates schools according to how well they preserve students' rights to free speech.FIRE assigns each school a color code — red, yellow or green — which corresponds to their policies protecting free speech.According to FIRE's website, a “red light school” is designated as one that has at least one policy that both clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech, a “yellow light school” is one with some policies that could ban or excessively regulate protected speech and a “green light school” has no serious threats to free speech.“Rutgers is a yellow light school,” Khavich said.
