How can you help?

1. Join the AmeriCorps Alums Policy Liaison Program.  Our Policy Liaison program provides AmeriCorps alumni with an opportunity to play a direct role in strengthening national service policy by connecting alumni to their elected officials. Click here for more information or contact Greg Heinrich at gheinrich@americorpsalums.org to join the program.

2. Call, fax, or write your Congressperson and Senators to let them know you would like them to support the Serve America Act- the Kennedy-Hatch legislation mentioned in President Obama’s speech to Congress on 2/24/09.  Don’t know their number?  Locate it at www.house.gov or at www.senate.gov.
