VISUALIZE THE DEBT AT UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO

On March 30, 2011, YAL at UCSD participated in the memorable, nationwide activism event of Visualizing the Debt. After over eight hours of work (and several Mexican food runs), we were able to complete a large Debt Counter able to suit our purpose of gathering attention on our own campus towards the issue of the National Debt. By placing our Debt Counter on the busiest thoroughfare on campus, we were able to garner enough attention in order to promote YAL and the issue of the national debt to declare the event a complete success. KUSI San Diego, a local news network, also gave extensive coverage of the event and even placed us as top news of the day! All-in-all, our success was measured by the large amount of people we educated as well as the many others who encouraged us to keep up the good work.
