Over the last week and a half, I've watched the launch and rapid growth of a very promising movement. It is called "80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs" and represents the coalescence of over a dozen leading youth organizations to advocate for a new American economy.
This is the kind of movement, the kind of coordinated effort that America needs to tackle our greatest and most glaring problems. 80 Million Strong promises not just the organization and conviction to accomplish their goals, but the understanding and foresight to accomplish the right goals without compromising our future. It is the goal of The Concord Coalition to educate the public about the importance of fiscal sustainability. It is the goal of 80 Million Strong to be the voice of the Millennials so they can hold government accountable to the next generation. At the intersection of the two, I hope to see the political strength of young Americans used judiciously to advocate for sound government and a secure fiscal future.
As Concord's Youth Outreach Coordinator, I am proud to be a part of the 80 Million Strong coalition, and look forward to witnessing their continued growth over the coming months.
Be sure to...
- Give them your ideas for creating jobs
- Apply for their summit to represent America's youth in Washington
