129Help Pass the new Peace Corps Bill in Congress
- Mar 4 5:52 PMPlease take two minutes and
email a message to Peace Corps Director Gaddi Vasquez at
GVasquez@... and ask him to endorse Peace Corps Bill
HR250. This is the same bill that Senator Dodd introduced in
the Senate last year that passed by unanimous consent with
Director Vasquez's previous endorsement but that unfortunately
died in the House of Representatives before it could be voted on.
The bill makes funds available to double the size of the Peace
Corps, it reinforces the independence of the Peace Corps, and it
creates an independent Innovation Fund of $10M that will be made
available to RPCVs for Third Goal projects.
If Returned Volunteers and the Peace Corps can work together,
they can get this bill passed this year. Its successful passage
will be a milestone in Peace Corps History and part of Director
Vasquez's legacy as Peace Corps Director for years to come. Send
your email to the Director at GVasquez@... ask him to
throw his support behind HR250. If you would like your message
to be added to a petition that will be sent to the Peace Corps
then cc a blind copy of your message to PeaceCorpsRPCVs@...
