Encore.org’s Social Action Pick of the Week

Mayors around the U.S. know that national service works, and are counting on these programs to help tackle tough problems facing our society. By unleashing the power of citizens who want to serve, programs like AmeriCorps and Senior Corps are making all of our communities better places to live. The White House’s FY18 budget proposal could potentially eliminate these critical programs, so please join us in asking your mayor to sign this letter of support via our Gen2Gen partner Voices for National Service, and let Congressional representatives know what programs are making a positive difference back home!
