Field 21 million American World Service/Jobs Corps volunteers over the next 27 years.
People's Lobby's citizen-initiated proposed law will produce a robust, peaceful, productive national service program that helps our military volunteers create smarts, security, jobs, and a growing middle class. The AWSC National Service proposed bill is at http://peopleslobby.us/awsc-congressional-proposal
Imagine if 20 million Peace Corps Volunteers had served since 1961 rather than barely over 200,000... if the same increase applied to such do-good organizatiions like VISTA, AmeriCorps, do-good NGOs, etc...
Imagine if People's Lobby Inc. (PLI) Joint US-USSR Peace Corps, which inspired Congresswomn Boxer to introduce it as HR 1807 in 1989, had by now produced 100,000 Russians and Americans who had served together as PCVs.
Imagine if this ambitious, educational,enriching, and unifying national service program were funded with potentially no cost to tax payers http://peopleslobby.us/awsc/financing-awsc/ thanks to its non-traditional funding mechanisms, Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge, and growing public awareness of huge inequities
Would the world be a better, healthier place?
Nixon opened China. Press Trump's Congress to inspire, move and open the US, Russia, and other nations to peaceful robust AWSC National Service.
Without money, PLI needs citizen pressure to attract strong original sponsors to introduce the AWSC Congressional Proposals. PLI then needs your continued citizen support to add cosponsors and pass the legislation.
This interactive letter to Congressional reps offers citizens the opportunity to press your representative to sponsor the AWSCNS Congressional Proposals that will create jobs, expand common sense, and strengthen public policies from the grassroots on up.

People's Lobby's citizen-initiated American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals National Service Proposal (AWSCNS) would field twenty-one million Americans full-time volunteers over the ensuing twenty-seven years in their choice of such governmental and non-governmental organizations as the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, Head Start, Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, Oxfam, Mercy Corps, State Conservation Corps, in-need schools, health clinics, hospitals, etc. With visionary leadership, its unorthodox funding mechanism would cover the estimated $700 billion twenty-seven year investment in America’s full-time national service volunteers developing a healthier world. While cost-effectively doing good, this jobs program would provide character enriching learning experiences that will be forever treasured.
Had we made this commitment decades ago, as leaders like JFK wanted to, our public policy IQ would have been high enough to keep us from stumbling into $5 trillion + wars that almost crippled our economy, weakened our capacity, and damaged our image and unity.
If we had implemented this robust visionary legislation decades ago, we could have avoided spending trillions of dollars on recent wars, erased Al Quedaish ideas, and escaped today’s weakened economic recovery.
If decades ago, we had made the Peace Corps and Vista the size they were envisioned to be by the visionary and bipartisan leadership of long ago, today’s world would be better, our economy stronger, and the world would not see Camelot crumbling on the hill.
Decades of stumbling into costly wars has left America in need of a jobs program that provides cost effective employment, builds our skills, and makes us smarter. The AWSCNS is a meaningful jobs program that addresses today's needs. Therefore, we are asking you, our representative, to sponsor and support Peoples Lobby's proposed American World Service Corps Congressional proposals.
As our elected representative, will you sponsor and support the American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals (AWSC)? Please let me and People’s Lobby know your position at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to your response. Thank you. For more information go to www.WorldServiceCorps.us and www.PeoplesLobby.us.
