By Jonathan Pearson on Friday, April 22nd, 2011
With the help from many NPCA advocates, 108 members of the House of Representatives signed on to a Peace Corps funding letter for Fiscal Year 2012 being circulated by RPCV Congressmen Sam Farr, Mike Honda and John Garamendi.
The letter supports President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2012 Peace Corps funding request of $440 million.
Big, big thanks to everyone who took action in support of this letter!
