We are helping the National Peace Corps Association with an important event in Fort Worth. Since Congressman Granger has such great influence on the Peace Corps budget, we need a good turn out to help increase Peace Corps' funding. Thus, the NPCA is sending its organizer Jonathan Pearson to Fort Worth on June 12.
