About Fiscal Wake-Up Tour Events:

The Concord Coalition believes that only with an engaged, informed and demanding public can the nation's fiscal challenges be met. The Fiscal Wake-Up Tour's mission is to cut through the usual partisan rhetoric and stimulate a more realistic public dialogue on what we want our nation's future to look like, along with the required trade-offs. We believe that elected leaders in Washington know there is a problem, but they are unlikely to act unless forced to by their constituents. The Tour began as a series of public forums around the country and now, in addition to those forums, we are organizing in-depth local committees to further focus attention on our nation's daunting long-term fiscal challenges.
