Save AmeriCorps!

As a former AmeriCorps member I know how valuable the program is for agencies across the country. Currently funding for AmeriCorps is facing cancellation, which would undoubtedly be a devastating loss for our nation. Watch this video of some people I know, reflecting on their experience in AmeriCorps ...

Note: I just can't see the logic behind cutting funding for a program that takes dedicated young people and pays them less than minimum wage to spend a year of their lives working with agencies that strive for the well-being of our communities (like Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and many many more!).
