NPCA Endorses Senator Murphy's Budget for 15,000 Peace Corps Volunteers

Dear friends,
The National Peace Corps Association is proud to endorse "Rethinking the Battlefield," U.S. Senator Chris Murphy's (D-Conn) alternative budget proposal representing a powerful vision for American leadership in International Affairs. This proposal includes funding for 15,000 Peace Corps Volunteers by 2022. 

We are forwarding you NPCA's press release in the hopes that you can push it out into the public media space (print and online), either yourself or through your media contacts. And if you can help NPCA build our media contact list, we'd appreciate it even more! Just reply to this email or contact us at news@peacecorpsconnect.org. 

Though the vision of 15,000 volunteers is an exciting one, we know it will be an uphill battle in the next few months just to maintain level funding of $410 million for Peace Corps and $60 billion for International Affairs. For this reason, we need all the media support we can get!

With gratitude,
Juliana Essen (Thailand 1993-95)
Chief Impact Officer
