The Louisiana chapter is comprised of Americans from all walks of life who support a common sense, bipartisan, solution to fix the debt. If you are interested in being involved in the citizen's steering committee or volunteering with the Louisiana chapter, please contact us at volunteer [@] fixthedebt.org.
About the Campaign
The Campaign to Fix the Debt is a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path. We come together from a variety of social, economic and political perspectives, around the common belief that America's growing federal debt threatens our future and that we must address it. The Campaign will mobilize key communities-including leaders from business, government, and policy-and people all across America who want to see elected officials step up to solve our nation's fiscal challenges.
Recognizing that the time for action is now, the Campaign will work in Washington, DC and around the country to educate people on the need for a comprehensive plan to fix our long-term debt and deficits. In our history, America has always been able to tackle its greatest challenges -- we are confident we can rise to the occasion again.
