The Campaign to Fix the Debt is working to build a broad coalition of organizations concerned about the country’s fiscal future. In order to do so, we are engaging organizations, unions, associations, think tanks, advocates, elected officials and businesses across the political spectrum, representing diverse constituencies. The groups listed below have become full-fledged partners by signing on to our principles.
For those groups who may not be able to sign on to all our principles but are still interested in continuing the very important discussion about our debt, we encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the many ways available to participate in this process. Regardless of your organization’s views on the nuances of the debt we look forward to including your voice in the dialogue.
