- Jun 22, 2011Greetings RPCVs!
First Response Action is thrilled to announce that tomorrow, Thursday June 23rd at 2:15 p.m. EST, Congressman Poe and Senator Isakson will be introducing legislation to support Volunteers who report or experience crime. The legislation, The Kate Puzey Peace Corps Safety and Security Act, is the product of both Congressman Poe and Senator Isakson working closely with Peace Corps, First Response Action and Kate's Voice. We are very encouraged by the final product!
Peace Corps has expressed verbal support for the bill and a press release is anticipated following the press conference on Thursday.
Please visit the First Response Action blog posting for more information and highlights of the legislation:
We are awaiting details on when the House and Senate members will vote, but your outreach as an RPCV group is always encouraged! Please visit the Take Action tab of our website for more information.
