Please be an advocate for Peace Corps funding! Deadline: Thursday, March 28th

We need your help!

Each year several congressmen (Joe Kennedy, John Garamendi, and Garrett Graves) write a Dear Colleague letter to their fellow congressmen/women asking them to sign the letter in support of the Peace Corps. This is an important way to continue support for the Peace Corps which is more important than ever because the President wants to cut the budget (again).

We ask that you contact Adam Smith (202)225-8901 and Kim Schrier (202)225-7761 and ask them to sign the letter. All of Washington’s congressmen/women have signed it except for these two. Adam Smith has signed it in the past and since Kim Schrier is new this year, she may not be aware of the letter.

This is a request from NPCA – the deadline is this Thursday and they would like to have as many congressmen/women as possible sign the letter.
