Redwoods folks, friends, & public

Redwoods folks, friends, and public come Oct 30, 2017 to Redwoods Retirement Community Auditorium in Mill Valley at 3:00 p.m.

Come hear stories and view slides from People’s Lobby, Peace Corps, Habitat for Humanity building projects, California Conservation Corps, elder care, service programs, etc…

Understand  via stories why People’s Lobby urges you to push Congress to introduce and enact their citizen initiated American World Service Corps National Service (AWSCNS) Congressional Proposal.

When the nation lacks a robustly sized Peace Force, it is difficult to build peace, rebuild after disasters, promote good will, win over radicals, smarten  nations, repair of the environment, etc.

The AWSCNS  builds that army & pressures the uber-rich to be  primary investors in fielding 21 million AWSC National Service volunteers over 27 years.

Uber-rich donate?

1.1% of Forbes 2014 wealth donated annually totally funds 27 years of 21 million AWSCs doing good.

To Bill Gates & Warren Buffett:

Re: Seeking support statement for implementing an adjunct to Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge Philosophy.

It is People’s Lobby’s hope that your staff, you, and Mr. Buffett will decide to print (or video, publicize, etc.) something positive about why the world needs our:

1)  American World Service Corps National Service (AWSCNS) Congressional Proposal and it’s

2)  Nontraditional funding components that uses mega wealth donations to dramatically improve real world health.

With a miniscule staff, it is difficult to convert the overwhelming support we receive in presentations and from about 50 congressional staff visits into introducing and implementing the robust AWSCNS Proposal.  Less robust proposals have been introduced, like the Serve America Act of 2009 in honor of Ted Kennedy, whose goals were never met; and the Inspire Act of 2017 by my Congressman Jared Huffman.

Supportive words about the AWSCNS would bolster all three national service proposals.

For over 10 years, People’s Lobby has been pushing to introduce and implement the American World Service Corps National Service (AWSCNS) Congressional Proposal, which would involve 21,000,000 Americans in full-time, voluntary national service at home and abroad for the ensuing 27 years through such organizations as:

Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, Habitat for Humanity, Doctors Without Borders, Head Start, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, Americans Friends Service Committee, TechnoServe, Heifer, Red Cross, Save The Children, Mercy Ships, International Rescue Committee, State Conservation Corps, In-Need Schools, Hospitals Therapy Wards, Homes for The Elderly, Homeless Centers, Prison Education Programs, Medical Clinics, Drug Rehab Centers, etc.

To fund this magnificent force for peace, People’s Lobby’s nontraditional funding components indirectly connects with and increases the growth of the Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge Philosophy.

A 1-2% annual voluntary wealth donation, escrowed to an AWSC National Service Investment Account, from just the Forbes 400 would totally underwrite the AWSCNS investment in more rapidly involving millions in spreading health, welfare, sustainability, and understanding worldwide. The successful implementation of a robust AWSCNS might inspire other nations to do similar robust national service corps and, hopefully, shift our over-reliance on militaristic forces to peace building national service corps.

Thanks for considering.
