Help Reduce the Federal Debt

Cascade Policy Institute is joining other local groups (across the political/philosophical spectrum) encouraging our supporters to attend a National Town Hall Meeting this Saturday, June 26th in Portland. There is no cost, and your voice is needed.

AmericaSpeaks is convening this largest ever national discussion on the country’s fiscal future. In 19 cities across the country thousands of citizens will participate in an AmericaSpeaks 21st Century Town Meeting®. Participants will be connected live via satellite video, webcast and interactive technologies. You will be able to discuss your concerns and register your choices about how we should deal with our country’s out-of-control spending and the federal debt.

Everyone, age 15 and over, is welcome. Organizers especially encourage you to invite your teenagers and young adults who may find this their first opportunity to talk about their concerns for America’s – and their – future. Opinions will be summarized and delivered to the media and national political leaders.
