Northeast Regional Conference

Stability is not a word many would use to describe the times we’re in. Political instability, a decline in public trust, increasing debates over senses of and purposes of being, there simultaneously being more and fewer unwritten norms of behavior are dominating our airwaves, news-feeds, and day-to-day conversations. In a time of questions, we want liberty to be the answer. Students For Liberty and the NYU College Libertarians will put forward bold speakers who will discuss the world we’re in and the world we could move towards.

On November 4th, hundreds will gather at New York University’s Grand Hall to hear from fantastic speakers and engage with students who are like-minded, diverse-thinkers, and undecided.


Venue Address: 238 Thompson Street Ny Ny
