Campus Outreach - The Advocates for Self-Government

Campus Outreach

Libertarian college students: How would you like to double or triple membership in your campus group?

Here’s how. The Advocates for Self-Government will provide you with the very best outreach tool available in the liberty movement — at no charge to you! It’s our Operation Politically Homeless (OPH) kit — and it’s guaranteed to help you quickly discover and create new libertarians on your campus.

OPH is the Advocates’ famous “event in a kit” that uses the World’s Smallest Political Quiz and eye-catching graphics to turn an ordinary ho-hum outreach booth into a crowd-drawing, crowd-pleasing event that’s fun for boothers and attendees alike. (Yes, fun! We hear that over and over again.) OPH adds a whole new dimension of fun and effectiveness to campus tabling.

OPH also makes it far easier for you to get the names and contact information of students on your campus who are libertarians or interested in libertarian ideas. It’s a great, proven tool that libertarian activists have used for decades to increase membership, find allies, and stimulate public awareness of libertarianism.

OPH has been enthusiastically endorsed by libertarian leaders in organizations including Young Americans for Liberty, Students for Liberty, College Libertarians, the Republican Leadership Caucus, the Libertarian Party… and more!

Sign up today for your free OPH Kit — and start growing your group by leaps and bounds!

THESE KITS ARE FREE FOR STUDENTS! Please note: OPH kits normally sell for nearly $50 plus shipping, but our generous supporters have made it possible for us to provide campus libertarian groups an OPH kit at no charge. All we ask in return… is that you use it!

Here’s the deal. We ask that your organization:

  1. Run at least 3 OPH events per school year
  2. Send us informal reports of your experiences and progress (email or phone is fine)
  3. Send us some good action photos of your booth

Remember three is just a minimum. The more you do, the more libertarians you will discover, the more members you’ll add to your group and the more people will be introduced to the ideas of liberty!

Here’s what students from all over the country are saying about OPH:

We used the OPH kit at the school’s club fair last week and recruited 55 new members to the club.

Todd Hollenbeck, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Students for Liberty Campus Coordinator

I can honestly say implementing OPH is one of the best methods of recruitment for those of us involved in spreading the message of more personal responsibility and less government. Words cannot describe the feeling I had as I witnessed the growth of the liberty movement firsthand.

David Torres, University of Houston at Clear Lake, Young Americans for Liberty

One of our leaders, Kevin Duewel at George Washington University, used OPH to attract students during a student organization fair. He found it to be incredibly successful and attracted over 60 new students to his organization, 15 of whom he identifies as potential ‘core leaders’ for the future. Thank you so much for the support you have given SFL and the groups in our network you are making a huge difference on campuses across the country.

Peter J. Neiger, Internal Operations Manager, Students For Liberty

OPH is a great tool to get students interested.

Brandon Wasicsko, Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles for Liberty.

Last semester, OPH was integral to our group’s establishment. [It] attracted key individuals who now serve as the foundation for our organization.

Adam Mastrangeli, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign Libertarians

We used the Operation Politically Homeless kit to draw attention to the World’s Smallest Political Quiz… and were able to get 102 new sign-ups! The success of the event has everyone in the club excited about increasing our presence on campus this year and promoting liberty!

Christopher Eager, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Young Americans for Liberty

Operation Politically Homeless kits are a great way to engage students from across the political spectrum. We signed up new members and advertised our upcoming events. By the end of the day, we helped a lot of students discover, confirm, and/or question their political ideological convictions.

Kevin Duewel, Liberty Society of George Washington University

We are all huge fans of the Advocates and very grateful for your support of SFL and student activism. At our Midwest Conference this past Saturday, we held a Student Activism Panel and when asked the best way to find new group members, everyone agreed the best thing to do was get an OPH Kit from the Advocates.

Clark Ruper, Vice President, Students For Liberty

Enticed by the colorful posters and the full table display, nearly one hundred students came up… Group membership increased ten-fold!”

Mikayla Hall, Washington State University, Young Americans for Liberty

Awesome! OPH is doing wonders in promoting liberty on the UT campus!

Andy Fernandez, University of Texas Libertarian Longhorns

OPH is a breakthrough tool. Anyone can do it — it’s so easy. It’s not only a great tool for attracting people, it’s also a great tool for keeping people involved.

Matthew “Boomer” Shannon, California Libertarian Party Executive Committee

oung Americans for Liberty at Vanderbilt University tabled from morning to afternoon. We had great participation and students were very receptive to our message… In the end we had about 100 students take the survey and 11 new members.”

Kenny Tan, Vanderbilt University, Young Americans for Liberty

The Pepperdine College Libertarians used the OPH kit yesterday. It was amazing! We had 20-plus students realize they were libertarians and signed up to get information about our meetings because they want to learn more about the ideas of liberty! It was incredible! It was the most successful tabling we have ever done. Thank you so much!

Michelle J. Fields, Pepperdine College Libertarians

Operation Politically Homeless wildly surpassed all my hopes and expectations. It is the most powerful recruitment tool in the liberty movement.”
