Peace Corps Budget
The latest FY17 budget includes level funding for the Peace Corps through September. All of our cards, calls, and emails likely helped! The next version of the FY18 budget is expected to be released around May 22 (earlier versions showed a ~30% cut for International Affairs).
Reps on Recess
Our house representatives should be home on recess from now until May 15. This is a good time for in-person meetings and also to attend town halls.
Join NPCA’s #ProtectPeaceCorps Postcard Campaign by printing your own or attending one of NorCalPCA’s upcoming Postcard Writing Partiess in San Francisco or the North Bay. Resources are available to print a template, see sample text, and read an instructional toolkit.
