3016Petition Alert from Mary Parsaca
- Feb 28, 2002I have just read and signed the petition:
PRESERVATION OF AN INDEPENDENT PEACE CORPS
considering the urgent need for what this petition
propses, I would definitely encourage you to do so,
Your action on this petition will have an impact
beyond just having signed your name. As you read
this, Peace Corps goals are being reworked in Congress
by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers attempting to
expand the role of grassroots organizations in Peace
(For more information, link to:)
Unfortunately, their efforts are hampered by
provisions of the recent Presidential Executive Order
creating the USA Freedom Corps. Certain provisions of
this executive order would, if unchecked, allow other
government agencies to misuse or even direct the
mission of Peace Corps. The language of this petition
and the timing of action by Returned Peace Corps
Volunteers presents a real and viable opportunity to
have what you are signing become law, as the Returned
Peace Corps Volunteers are meeting with members of our
government to produce legislation on Peace Corps.
We've all seen the pervasiveness of corruption in
society: here's a chance to effectively stop a part of
it. Please be sure and use the form on the petition's
web page to e-mail your friends so that they, too, can
put their names down with the list of people who are
petitioning our government to enact law to
ensure that the U.S. Peace Corps will not be misused
or directed by other government organizations.
If you really want to maximize the effect of this
petition, be sure and e-mail the text of the petition
to your representative in a personalized letter
format. This can be easily done by linking to:
