Campus libertarians are having great success using free OPH kits provided by the Advocates to reach the libertarian leaders and activists of tomorrow!
So far we’ve given over 900 OPH kits free to campus libertarian groups who’ve requested them. It’s one of the biggest outreach efforts in our history.
And libertarian students are putting those OPH kits to work!
Before I share a couple of recent OPH success stories with you, let me offer some numbers for you to consider:
- Imagine if just 200 OPH kits were used just three times this coming year by students and other libertarian groups.
- That would be 600 OPHs in total.
- Now imagine each OPH discovered and activated just 20 new libertarians. (That’s a very reasonable expectation, based on years of experience.)
The results: 12,000 new libertarians discovered and brought into the liberty movement!
Imagine what a difference that could make to liberty in America.
And that’s a low estimate. OPHs are so easy to do, any group can do them several times a year.
There’s no reason libertarians couldn’t put on 1,000 OPHs per year. Or many more than that.
Opportunities abound: music festivals, political events, demonstrations, gun shows, fairs, festivals, on campus… anywhere people are gathered, you will find success with your OPH.
That’s been proven, over and over again, since the Advocates first created and introduced OPH in 1987.
Actually, as an OPH kit user don’t think of yourself as just working to grow and expand your own local organization’s membership — vital as that is.
You should also think of yourself as part of a national OPH movement. With enough OPHs, on and off campus, we can reach millions of Americans with the ideas of liberty — and bring tens of thousands of them — every year — into the liberty movement.
OPH is revolutionizing America. Those who are using OPH now are building the liberty mass movement of tomorrow.
Americans are hungry for the ideas of liberty. They’ve never been so eager to hear the message your OPH booth can bring them. There’s never been a better opportunity — and there is no better tool than OPH.
Now, some exciting new OPH success stories!
1. University of Missouri Young Americans for Liberty: Over 50 New Recruits
In early September the University of Missouri chapter of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) used OPH to educate and recruit at the Student Activity Mart.
Member James Chappelow says OPH “rocked the Student Activity Mart.”
“We recruited more than 50 new interested students and provided a public service to Mizzou students of all political stripes by helping them get in touch with their own ideas and beliefs using the World’s Smallest Political Quiz,” Chappelow reports.
Fifty new students signed up! And many other students were educated about liberty and the political spectrum. Congratulations!
2. Bowling Green Young Americans for Liberty: 100 Students Signed Up
Reports Sam Link of Young Americans for Liberty at Bowling Green State University in Ohio:
“We used the OPH kit to help spread the word and recruit during BGSU’s Campus Fest.
“We were definitely the most active political table at Campus Fest. The Quiz was a huge [help] in bringing students to the table and we were able to sign up around 100 people that day!
“Thanks for the OPH kit!”
Thank you and the Bowling Green YAL for using OPH, Sam!
These students are showing what’s possible with OPH. It’s easy, fun, and turns a boring ho-hum literature table into a crowd-pleasing, crowd-drawing event.
OPH offers the libertarian movement the opportunity to easily reach the public with our ideas and recruit tens of thousands to our side.
Take advantage of this amazing, proven tool!
