As you know, Congress is debating the fiscal year 2018 budget and in September, the Senate will be working on the national service funding bill. Our Capitol Hill Day on September 12th provides the perfect opportunity to educate Congress on the impact national service members have in their home communities while relevant legislation is before them.
We need your help.
To facilitate maximum participation, Capitol Hill Day is scheduled concurrently with the AmeriCorps State and National Symposium in Washington, DC. On the morning of Tuesday September 12, before the Symposium kicks off, Voices for National Service staff will arrange meetings for program representatives with key decision-makers on Capitol Hill. Meeting participants will be organized by state, so congressional leaders can hear directly from those affiliated with national service programs in the states they represent.
September will be a critical month in the budget process. We hope you can join us in DC!
Yours in Service,
Voices for National Service
