Dear Friends:

This morning the Peace Corps urgently needs your help.

A document vital to Peace Corps’ future is now circulating in the Senate: The Peace Corps Funding Dear Colleague Letter. By signing onto this letter, Senators pledge to support robust funding for the Peace Corps for fiscal year 2018.

Please urge your Senator to sign now.

With the president’s proposed cuts to the Peace Corps—potentially denying many more Americans and host country communities the opportunity to partner in peace, progress, and understanding—it is up to Congress to restore the agency’s resources.

But the turn-around time is short. Senators have until this Friday, June 9 to sign the Dear Colleague Letter. That’s our deadline, too.

After you email your Senator, please forward this email to your networks. Two minutes of your time could mean another American has the opportunity to serve our country and fuel the next generation of American leadership.

With graditude,




Glenn Blumhorst

President and CEO

National Peace Corps Association
