YLC Event: Private Solutions to Public Problems

October 12, 2016
222 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.
– Ronald Reagan

We aren’t haunted by the bureaucratic ghosts & goblins of Big Government and their socialist schemes to reach their ghoulish goals.

Even during this Halloween season, we are not afraid of the wicked witchcraft of the welfare state and its dark spells of dependency, overregulation and inefficiency.

Who are we? We are “The Fearless Fighters for the Free Market.”
We are the Young Leaders Circle.

Join us Wednesday, October 12th
from 6pm-9pm
for our monthly member event in North Beach
“Private Solutions to Public Problems.”

This October we bring to you four amazing perspectives on the role of free markets in solving for some of society’s biggest challenges. From unnecessary gun violence to homelessness, the free market can solve some of society’s problems in ways the government simply cannot.

This is a Young Leaders Circle member-only (ages 21-40) event.

For more information, please contact Stephanie Watson at [email protected] or call (415) 955-6143
