Contact Congress Today!

Please join our Mother’s Day action campaign by contacting your members of Congress TODAY. Youth from across the D.C. area will be descending upon Capitol Hill today urgeing support for the Youth PROMISE Act.  This bill will provide unprecedented aid to young people who are at-risk of becoming involved, or who are already involved in, gangs or the criminal justice system to redirect them toward productive alternatives.  Additionally, congressional offices across the country are being visited tomorrow, Friday, May 8th, by Peace Alliance activists, reminding them that Peace Wants a Piece of the Pie — that is the federal budget.  Specifically, we are asking Congress to support the Youth PROMISE Act and as always, the Dept. of Peace legislation. (It’s not too late to visit your own local office, even if just for a drop-by.)

Your action in support of these bills will only take a few minutes, but will significantly increase the impact of our visiting teams!
