The Can Kicks Back mascot, AmeriCAN, appeared along with University of Arkansas Student Body President Tori Pohler, George Washington Univeristy President Ashwin Narla and Cleveland Young Professional Senate President William Tarter, Jr.
Politicians of all stripes often invoke the future when addressing the national debt, but the youth who will inherit that future seldom are a part of the discussion. That is changing.
On Monday, the Millennial-led The Can Kicks Back formally launched. The “Can-Paign Kick Off” was held at George Washington University in Washington, DC. Students from local colleges attended and heard from the student body presidents of George Washington University and the University of Arkansas, as well as from William Tarter, Jr., the president of the Cleveland Young Professional Senate.
The Can Kicks Back is the Millennial outreach partner of the Fix the Debt Campaign. Those interested in joining the effort can sign up at http://www.thecankicksback.org/.
