Upcoming Vote in House Foreign Affairs Committee!

Next Wednesday - September 21st - the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) will vote on the "Kate Puzey Peace Corps Protection Act" [more info]

Please help us ensure the legislation passes by contacting members of the HFAC and asking them to support the bill and become a cosponsor!

You can contact members by sending an email on their website, or by calling the phone numbers provided on this site - for a list of HFAC Members who are not cosponsors of the legislation, click here.

Finally, in addition to gaining more cosponsors on the HFAC, another objective is for the legislation to pass without amendments that could jeopardize its chances of becoming law - if you contact representatives who seem supportive, please also request that they offer no amendments to the original bill.

Thank you so much for your support - it is continuing to make a huge difference in this effort to win better protection and support for our nation's Peace Corps Volunteers.
