College campuses are the epicenters of political indoctrination, permeating the minds of young, vulnerable adults with ideas that are rooted in marxism.
With the transformation of our culture and the extreme difference in the way the rising generation has been taught and raised, it’s easy to feel hopeless and discouraged in what the future of America holds.
However, some of the most intellectual and inspiring young leaders are determined to reroute the direction of Gen Z by spreading truth, and it’s happening right now through the Convention of States movement.
In a Tuesday night discussion on COS at Home, Director of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) Jackson Allen encouraged students to speak up and ask questions that challenge professors when their claims don’t add up. When a classroom full of students is silent, professors’ hidden agendas go unchecked and students accept what is taught as truth.
“Just because they have a PhD in something doesn't mean that they're right about something,” Allen said. “It's not that college students are resistant to the truth. It's just that they're not exposed to the truth.”

Allen explained three intellectual groups that exist on college campuses. One small group consists of people who are fighting the cultural battle and taking a stand in the classroom. The second consists of people who are completely unaware and uneducated about today's issues, and the third and biggest group is the misinformed who are learning about blatantly false ideas.
“We have to go to where the young people are and not be afraid to engage and challenge what they're being taught in the school systems,” added Regional Director Jonathan Viaud.
In many cases, young people will be open to new ideas and points of view because they've never taken the time to form solid opinions, a reason why both the education system and politicians prey on this age group. Every discussion and civil conversation is important.
Allen, who has experienced misleading curriculum in college firsthand, gave empowering advice to students struggling through the education system: Challenge professors that you know are speaking lies and misinformation.
Take education into your own hands, ELP Assistant Director Reagan Green advised. “Our only agenda is truth. And so we're going to present to you the facts of reality and how God designed the society to work... You cannot rely on your college to teach you about the reality of America's history, the good, the bad, and the ugly. We want to tell the whole story.”
Whether you’re a student, young adult, parent or grandparent, Convention of States unites Americans of every background on the basis of self-governance and limited government. Each individual can be a leader in their local community by taking a stand and voicing their thoughts.
“You never know whose lives you're touching, who you're impacting,” encouraged ELP Administrator Kristen Stanciu. “Keep that in mind and just remain committed to the truth no matter how many lies are being spread out there.”
