URGENT ACTION NEEDED:
Call your Senators
Urge them to protect Peace Corps funding
The President and the House have proposed $12 million in cuts to the Peace Corps budget for fiscal year 2018. This limits opportunities for Americans to serve local communities abroad and to bring their skills back home to benefit our own country.
Now it’s now up to the Senate to protect level funding, to ensure that opportunities to serve with the Peace Corps are protected. We must act now to make our voices heard - the Senate is expected to make their final decision by early September.
The click-to-call tool on the left will help you get connected to your Senator.
