Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) is hosting a federal budget workshop with two nonpartisan organizations, the Concord Coalition and Fix the Debt, at the Campbell Community Center on Friday.

The Concord Coalition is a nationwide, non-partisan grassroots organization that educates the public about different causes and consequences of federal budget decisions. 

Fix the Debt is a non-partisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path.

Attendees will work in small groups to examine a variety of fiscal policy alternatives, and share their ideas on how to improve the nation’s long-term fiscal outlook, organizers said.

“I’m excited about hosting this workshop with the Concord Coalition and Fix the Debt, and hearing first-hand from my constituents about their budget priorities,” Eshoo said. “There are many factors involved in creating a national budget and this is a unique opportunity for concerned citizens to learn and participate.”

The workshop is Friday, March 28 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Campbell Community Center (Orchard City Banquet Hall) located at 1 West Campbell Ave. 

Individuals who wish to attend can RSVP here, or call Rep. Eshoo’s Palo Alto office at (650) 323-2984.
