A Fight for Our Future
About Our Founder
Morgan Zegers was born and raised in Upstate New York. Her father is a colonel in the United States military who served on-site during the aftermath of 9/11 and overseas in Operation Iraqi Freedom. His service inspired Morgan to join her local Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies’ Auxiliary, where she became the youngest-known officer in the state at 17-years-old.
While earning her degree from American University, Morgan started a small business crafting wooden American flags, carving all 50 stars by hand with a Dremel tool. Now, Zegers Freedom Flags is a strong family business that sells hundreds of flags across the country each year.
Morgan graduated from college one year early to save money. During her third and final year of school, she gained national media attention from Fox News, BBC World News, CNN, and Vice News in her campaign for New York State Assembly district 113 to fight the corruption and extreme taxation coming from the Cuomo administration. In 2018, at 21-years-old, she was the unanimously-endorsed candidate across three party lines, and lost by 13% on election day to a well-funded incumbent.
After witnessing the radicalization of her generation in college, Morgan was determined to dedicate her life to preserving a free, secure, and prosperous future for the United States.
Morgan founded Young Americans Against Socialism to ensure her generation understands the dangers and failures of socialism before it’s too late.
OUR Vision & MISSION
The Fight for Our Generation
Our mission is to show them how destructive socialism will be to our country: that socialism will destroy any chance for future generations of Americans to have a safe, secure, and prosperous future. YAAS is a tax-exempt 501c3 non-profit organization working to expose the dangers and failures of socialism to our country’s younger generations by telling the stories of freedom.
According to a Gallup Poll, 58% of young Americans would now choose socialism for the future of America. They believe socialism is the more moral choice compared to capitalism.
According to the Pew Research Center, 90% of all young Americans use some form of Social Media, are early adopters for new social media, and use Social Media sites at high levels.
“If you are looking to put your money in a place where you can fight for freedom, help Morgan at YAAS.org.”
"Kudos to the good work being done here. I hope the next generation can be saved. Socialism always leads to poverty, failure, and tyranny. As Vladimir Lenin stated, "The goal of socialism is communism.'"
"Besides Charlie Kirk from Turning Point USA, Morgan is the only one truly fighting to save her generation. Please help in any way you can."
"We, Cubans in exile, warned our Venezuelan friends in South Florida that Hugo Chavez was a Fidel Castro sympathizer and that he would turn their country into a "Cuba." They called us overzealous Cubans and laughed at us only now, with sadness, we say to them, 'We told you so...'"
"Thanks to Gabby and YAAS for this important message. I do feel sad for the people of Venezuela. We cannot allow this to happen to the USA. If the USA loses the 2A... that'll be the beginning of the end of democracy for the whole world."
“Morgan founded Young Americans Against Socialism and is a rising star leading the charge against the evils of socialism.”
