ServiceNation and AmeriCorps Alums are hosting Stand for Service DC. Join us on Capitol Hill to show your support for AmeriCorps and all national service members by peacefully standing along the sidewalks between the Capitol South Metro and the main entrances to the House of Representative office buildings. We will provide free Stand for Service t-shirts, signs, and materials to pass out to members of Congress and their staff as they head into work that morning. The event is free and open to the public.

We need a strong showing to remind Members of Congress and their staff of the broad and diverse support national service enjoys in the country as a whole and highlight the numerous ways AmeriCorps and Senior Corps produce enormous value to local communities all across our nation.

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 the DC metro area to join us to Stand for Service.
