may have heard, the White House's FY18 budget was sent to Congress this week, and
the proposal calls for the elimination of the Corporation for National and
Community Service, AmeriCorps, and Senior Corps. This recommendation disregards
overwhelming public support and eight decades of strong bipartisan legislative
support for national service.
Now more than ever before, we need to rally the troops, get others involved, and
ask our networks to speak out on behalf of national service programs.
Please contact your members of Congress today and urge them to protect funding for national service. Let them know how important these programs are to your community.
