Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of spending the day in North Carolina. It was exhilarating to witness a group of statewide non-profit leaders and two student groups from both North Carolina State and the University of North Carolina work through the federal budget challenges facing the country and come to a consensus on ways to fix the debt through using the Debt Fixer interactive budget tool.
Are you interested in hosting a Debt Fixer exercise in your own community, perhaps with a civic group, school, or business organization? Please contact Rachael Heisler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few days before that, we were in Denver, Colorado where local business leaders clearly understood that getting the national debt under control was essential to promoting long-term economic growth and local media took notice of our presence. We also spent some time with Fix the Debt volunteers from across the state whose continued commitment to the cause was truly inspiring.
We will continue to spread the message to all corners of the country. Be on the lookout.
