Thank you for your interest in starting a Liberty on the Rocks network!
Liberty on the Rocks is made up of volunteers like yourself who wish to further free markets, individual liberties, and the philosophy of peace and freedom. Starting a chapter will allow you to build a community of liberty-minded individuals while spreading the word about liberty, economics and free markets.
What is a Liberty on the Rocks Chapter?
Liberty on the Rocks chapters are social and educational libertarian networks aimed at uniting liberty-oriented individuals as a way to expose ideas, promote peace and free markets, to provide activism opportunities and offer encouragement to individuals who desire to live free. Chapters meet at a local bar/restaurant and are social as well as educational in nature. Meet-ups must occur at least once each month, preferably on the same day and time.
While there are no set agendas to these social networks, the opportunities for providing educational information are endless. Chapter Leaders are free to experiment with their own networks (with some restrictions*), and are also provided helpful tips and strategies on this website. While some chapters grow to 50+ guests at every happy hour (these chapters tend to host speakers and featured guests who provide “Ted Talk” style discussions—ones that are short and sweet), others remain smaller, with 5-15 guests at every event. Chapters are most likely to succeed if there are 2-3 individuals sharing responsibility for the group.
