Where did the slogan on your shirt “unapologetically patriotic” come from? Our Vice President Rosa Cento came up with it. The purpose of it is to show as a club and as a party specifically, we are unwilling to hold back our beliefs. We are okay with people disagreeing with us but they should know where we stand on issues. 

How do you think your club affects campus? We do a lot of events, like calls for Donald Trump. [Students] see our shirts and know our club exists. Our organization and presence lets everyone know we are here.

How do you wish to gain club involvement? Just to get more members to agree with conservative aspects and beliefs and get people to agree with what we stand for.
