Summary:

The Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State University is hosting a conference on Political Participation.  The Concord Coalition has been invited to conduct its deficit-reduction exercise "Debt Busters" to a diverse audience of students and professionals.

This event is invite-only.

For more information call: 765-285-8982.

More Details:

Debt Busters is the condensed version of Concord's Principles & Priorities exercise. Unlike Principles & Priorities, this activity takes only about forty minutes to complete. In that time, participants will learn the basics of budget reform and will encounter the same tough choices that make solving the deficit so difficult. Debt Buster categories include discretionary spending, health care, security, entitlement spending, and various tax policies.
