Join us in Celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of the Serve America Act

Posted by Jerry Duchene Saavedra on April 18, 2011

April 21st, 2011 marks the 2nd Anniversary of the signing of the 2009 Kennedy Serve America Act.  All across the country, supporters of service will gather in homes, community centers, service organizations, and other locations to celebrate and take action to help ensure it has a 3rd.

With the 2012 budget for AmeriCorps and all national service back on the chopping block, it is critical that the service community come together to talk about the progress we have made since the signing of the Serve America Act and about what we must do at the local level to ensure the vision and promise of this historic legislation is fully achieved.  All supporters of service are welcome.
