Voices for National Service just released this Action Alert:

WE NEED YOUR IMMEDIATE HELP TO PASS H.R. 2857, THE GIVE Act!

After 15 years – NOW is the time to reauthorize the national service programs.  Last week, moments before the House was going to vote on final passage of the GIVE Act, a parliamentary procedure snagged the bill.  Leadership was forced to pull the national service reauthorization bill from the floor.
 
The House is expected to resume consideration of the GIVE Act on Tuesday and will vote on the bill.   You must call and email your legislators TODAY and urge them to vote in favor of this important Act.
 
Your calls and emails are extremely important.   Your elected officials need to hear from you … their constituents.   Please call and write Congress and let them know that there is a high level of interest in strengthening national service programs and we need their support. 

For more information on how to be heard before tomorrow’s vote, head to the Voices for National Service Action Center.
