The Campaign to Fix the Debt has partnered with another influential group to resolve this country's long-term debt crisis. The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce has joined Fix the Debt in our effort to put our nation’s debt on a downward path and ensure economic stability for all Americans.
“We’ve partnered with the Campaign to Fix the Debt because we recognize that business cannot grow in a climate of economic uncertainty,” said Justin Nelson, NGLCC co-founder and president. “We don’t have to be partisan, but business leaders do have to be political. Businesses need certainty and predictability to stay on a steady growth trajectory and continue to drive this economy and create jobs.”
Representing over 1.4 million LGBT businesses and entrepreneurs, the NGLCC recognizes that the continued recovery and long-term success of the U.S. economy, and the diversity that fuels it, hinges on lawmakers’ ability to rein in the country’s long-term debt and deficits. NGLCC is also a founding member of the National Business Inclusion Consortium which represents diverse communities that total more than $8 trillion in consumer spending power.
