If you’re like me, you know the incredible value of service. And if you’re like me, you know that many more Americans should have the opportunity to serve.

Today, National Peace Corps Association is teaming up with Service Year Alliance and Voices for National Service so that Congress knows how America feels about the power of service.

Please join me in calling and writing your members in the House and Senate to urge them to prioritize national service in the 2017 budget.

Take action now.

The link above will connect you with your member offices and give you guidance on what to say. A few minutes of your time could mean a lifetime of change for an American and the community they serve.

Congress has until December 9, 2016 to reach a budget deal that will fund federal programs through 2017, including funding for service year opportunities like the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps and YouthBuild. Today we have the opportunity to stand with our partners in service and ask Congress to provide more opportunities for Americans to serve their country at home and abroad.

Please take sometime from your day and tell Congress: LET US SERVE.

If we want a greater culture of service in America, it starts with us.

In service,
