Press Teleconference to Hear Young Americans’ Concerns About Fiscal Cliff
When: Tuesday, December 18 at 11:00 a.m. ET
What: The co-founders of The Can Kicks Back, which recently released the wildly popular video of former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) dancing “Gangnam Style,” will detail the ways in which young Americans would be affected by Congress going over the fiscal cliff.
Why: Young Americans have the most to lose if we go over the fiscal cliff, as a new recession would make it harder for them to find a job, finance an education and invest in the future. With over 60 chapters in 25 states, The Can Kicks Back is mobilizing young Americans to pressure Congress for a long-term solution.
Details: On the call, college students and young professionals will share their personal stories about how the current economy is affecting them and why going over the cliff would negatively impact their lives. Relevant data and polling will be shared. Reporters can be put in touch with these young leaders for follow-up interviews.
