ServiceNation, in partnership with AmeriCorps Alums Des Moines, is hosting Stand for Service Iowa. The goal of this event is to showcase the broad and diverse support national service enjoys in Iowa and highlight the numerous ways AmeriCorps and Senior Corps produce enormous value to our state and the nation as a whole.

This free event is open to the public and will feature special guest speakers, a photo booth to take a picture holding up a sign stating why you Stand for Service, a table to record your Why I Serve video, free Stand for Service t-shirts, and complimentary refreshments.

WHY STAND FOR SERVICE?

National service is at the core of who we are as Americans. The spirit of service to country was born over 200 years ago and continues to live strong through the nearly 1,000,000 Americans that have served in AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, NCCC, and VISTA.

But the tradition of national service in America is once again at risk. On March 21st, 2013 the United States House of Representatives passed a budget resolution that calls for the elimination of these vital programs.

Elimination of CNCS = $0 for AmeriCorps, $0 for Senior Corps, $0 for National Service

With so much at stake, we are asking every national service supporter in Iowa to join us to Stand for Service.

Will you stand with us?
