LEESBURG, VA – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s leading grassroots advocate for economic freedom and limited government, will host a “National Prosperity Action Day” on Saturday, September 22. This nationwide event will harness the combined strength of AFP field staff, volunteers, activists, and coalition partners to make hundreds of thousands of phone calls for economic freedom. The phone banks will be hosted at over 80 AFP field offices around the country, each using the advanced “Freedom Phones” technology.
AFP President Tim Phillips and special guest Kate Obenshain will greet volunteers and give remarks at the AFP field office in Leesburg, VA.
“Our National Prosperity Action Day will give concerned Americans the opportunity to do something about President Obama’s failing agenda,” explained Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity. “Americans are tired of sitting on the sidelines while Washington spends away our future and drives us deeper into debt. This Saturday, they will get to respond.”
AFP’s newly-opened field office in Leesburg, VA will serve as the hub of the day’s activity, where AFP president Tim Phillips and other national staff will take part in the action, and track progress of offices around the country. AFP activists have already made nearly 3.8 million issue advocacy calls using Freedom Phones. The National Prosperity Action Day builds on the field program effort and will demonstrate the capacity of the technology for reaching and mobilizing concerned citizens.
“We look forward to greatly boosting already robust grassroots advocacy efforts, and sending a clear message to Obama that Americans are tired of his big-government agenda that has led to more spending, more debt, and fewer jobs,” Phillips continued.
The National Prosperity Action Day is a coalition effort supported by multiple fiscally conservative organizations including 60 Plus, Concerned Woman for America, and the National Rifle Association.
