International M-bag Mail Petition Progress
- NTCPA members: please act on this if you haven't already. Gary Zimny
I'm happy to announce that the national petition urging restoration
of affordable int'l mail for humanitarian purposes, and critical in
the work of an estimated third of all PCVs, continues to creep
forward, reaching 6,628 signatures this week. This petition began as
an RPCV undertaking, an example of the sort of effort directly and
substantially benefitting the Peace Corps, and at no cost to it. The
effort now encompasses all sorts of organizations and individuals.
This petition is a remarkable grassroots statement of "The People",
and we are hoping that it eventually will transcend the stubborn,
chronic indifference that seems to prevail.
