You can help support this bill by contacting your local representatives or representatives on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. If you have questions about the bill, you can contact Luke Murry in Congressman Poe's office at luke.murry@....

Your support of the Kate Puzey Volunteer Protection Act of 2011 will help ensure that Peace Corps Volunteers who become victims of crime will receive vital services and have rights which are currently not guaranteed to survivors!
It's also important to note that this week is effectively Peace Corps week as we are leading up to the 50th anniversary of the Corps. Let's make the 50th anniversary the year that legislation is passed to support whistle blowers and victims of crime!
