A few weeks ago, the House of Representatives issued a Dear Colleague letter with a record breaking 181 lawmakers calling for increased Peace Corps funding.
Now, your Senators have the chance to take similar action. But time is running out!! We are in the final hours in our effort to secure more signatures.
Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) are circulating this letter to Senate colleagues, encouraging robust funding for the Peace Corps in Fiscal Year 2020, which begins October 1st.
Follow this link to write to your Senators, asking them to sign the letter today! We encourage you to personalize your message in the body of the letter. If your Senator(s) signed the letter, contact them to say thank you!
Help us reach our goal of 40 Senate signatures.
Update as of 10:00 AM on Wednesday, April 24:
Number of Senators Signing the Letter: 34*
Number of Senators Needed to Reach our Goal: 6
