America Speaks: Our Budget, Our Economy will engage the American public in an unprecedented national discussion about our federal budget. Thousands of Americans reflecting the demographic, geographic and political diversity of our nation will come together on June 26, 2010 for a National Town Meeting connected via satellite video, webcast, and interactive technologies to weigh-in on the difficult choices involved with putting our federal budget on a sustainable path.
The National Town Meeting will take place in up to twenty AmericaSpeaks 21st Century Town Meeting locations across the country, in many Community Conversations, and online. All of the town meeting locations will be linked together by live satellite, webcast, and interactive technology. Chicago is one of the major locations. The UW-Madison is hosting the conversation in the Red Gym. Check the America Speaks website for more details.
This is an important opportunity for school district leaders. Consider attending the event and encourage others in your community to participate as well.
