About this Group

Group Description
CFACT was created to offer a new voice on consumer and environmental issues. We proclaim that the Western values of competition, progress, freedom, and stewardship can and do offer the best hope for protecting not only the Earth and its wildlife but even more importantly, its people.
Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
CFACT brings in a variety of speakers and holds other events specific to advancing our ideals. Such speakers have in the past included: Marc Marano, Alex Epstein, Jonah Goldberg, Walter Cunningham, Craig Rucker, and Ron Paul. The other events generally focus on our mission of promoting voluntary action on the environment, such as our annual Mississippi River Clean-Up, or promoting the power of the market as a solution to many social and environmental ills.
How this group's activities benefit the University community:
CFACT adds to the marketplace of ideas by providing another side to many of the debates on campus, specifically regarding the environment and consumer issues.
How this group fits into its categories:
CFACT provides educational programming to inform students about issues impacting free markets and the environment. CFACT also engages in political activism related to these issues.
How to get involved with this group:
Meetings are held every Tuesday at 7:00pm in our office right by campus at 802 Washington Ave. SE Suite 202. For more information, please email cfact@umn.edu or check out our Facebook page listed on the left side.
