Visualize the Debt at Clayton State University

YAL at Clayton State University (just south of Atlanta, GA) was proud to be one of the 75+ chapters nationwide to visualize the debt on their campuses during March 28-April 1.

There was barely enough room for the display, and it was difficult getting a picture of the whole display, but here it is:

As seen above here, members of local tea party and 9/12 groups (on the left) came out to help inform the student body about the unsustainable debt and what it will mean for their futures.

Yours truly manning the table, giving out flyers with how much each student owes toward the national debt.

We received some news coverage, from a local NBC affiliate and two times from the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s ‘Politifact’ – in both the online and printed editions! (I saw we were even mentioned on the front page of the 3/29/11 paper!)

Regretfully, I don’t have any video footage — but even if I did it wouldn’t be able to compete with the great videos I have seen that were so professionally done! As a consolation, below are some sidewalk chalk pics!
