Policy Director Joshua Gordon speaks to the Coffee Party Convention on a panel entitled “The Federal Deficit/Budget: Three Ways of Looking at the Elephant in the Room,” with Heather McGhee of Demos, & Carolyn Lukensmeyer of AmericaSpeaks.
The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Concord Coalition's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents.
