On Saturday, September27, 2008, as part of the ServiceNation Day of Action AmeriCorps Alumni and national service supporters across the country made our voices heard . More than 200,000 Americans participated in over 2,700 events across the country to demonstrate the power and citizen support of national and community service. Now we need your help to make sure national service is a politically relevant issue for Congressional candidates in your district for the next 32 days of the election.
Visit, call, and write your local Congressional Candidates and ask them to fill out the ServeNext 2008 Candidate Questionnaire. The Candidate Questionnaire will help us know where candidates stand on issues like eliminating the taxation on AmeriCorps Education Awards.
