If you believe we shouldn't delay starting doing such now, sign People's Lobby's (PLI) American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposal petition at www.change.org/petitions/view/field_21_million_american_world_service_corps_volunteers_over_the_next_27_years?te=npf . If introduced and passed in Congress, 21million Americans could serve over the subsequent 27 years.
The approximate $620 billion AWSC investment might seem like a lot, but not when one realizes that over a generation it saves many multiples of that by avoiding wars that will rage without it, poverty that would have been unaddressed, increased rather than decreased terrorists recruiting and costly targeting, and climate change effects that would have gone unchecked.
People's Lobby's (PLI) will be going to this fresh Congress with the AWSC Proposal. It would be great if you helped garner support for it with your Congressional reps. Learn more at www.WorldServieCorps.us .
