By Jonathan Pearson on Wednesday, January 19th, 2011
It is the most anticipated and most watched speech a president gives each year.
President Obama is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 25th.
Take Action Now!
Please contact the President and take the following action:
- Thank the President for the many times he has spoken so eloquently about Peace Corps and service to our nation.
- Ask the President to recognize the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps during his State of the Union address, and note the continuing contributions of current and returned Peace Corps volunteers.
- Note that this recognition is all the more appropriate in light of the recent passing of Peace Corps’ founding director, Sargent Shriver, and the many contributions he made for our nation.
