Ben Shapiro posterYoung America's Foundation says it has made the difficult decision to cancel all of its planned campus events through April because of the coronavirus epidemic.

YAF President Ron Robinson tells OneNewsNow that it was a difficult decision because college students are constantly being bombarded with leftist rhetoric and ideology, and YAF exists to provide a balanced option.

"We don't cancel any Foundation event lightly. Students really need an alternative,” he says. “Young America's Foundation's programs are one of the few places they have."

YAF, however, is following President Trump's lead by putting the wellbeing of participants in the events first. That means that YAF’s most popular campus events, Ben Shapiro appearances, will likely be rescheduled for the fall of 2020.

In the meantime, Robinson says student will be able to access past events online.

“Certainly, YouTube has a YAF channel that includes a lot of our strong programs,” he advises.
