Stand For Service DC
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
ServiceNation, in partnership with AmeriCorps Alums & The National Peace Corps Association, is hosting Stand for Service DC.
National service is at the core of who we are as Americans. The spirit of service to country was born over 200 years ago and continues to live strong through the nearly 1,000,000 Americans that have served in AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, NCCC, and VISTA.
But the tradition of national service in America is once again at risk. On March 21st, 2013 the United States House of Representatives passed a budget resolution that calls for the elimination of these vital programs.
With so much at stake, we are asking every national service supporter in DC-Metro area to join us on Wednesday, June 19th on Capitol Hill to Stand for Service. Together, we will showcase the broad and diverse support national service enjoys in the country as a whole and highlight the enormous value it provides to local communities all across our nation.
Will you stand with us?
Since participation in this event could be construed as advocacy, current AmeriCorps members should not attend.
