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.
