Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) received the Outstanding National Service Advocacy Award from the Voices for National Service for his work to elevate national service as a priority for the nation.

 

“I am honored and humbled to accept this award from the Voices for National Service today,” said Larson. “Less than 1% of our nation services in our military, AmeriCorps, and the Peace Corps. It is time for our country to invest in our citizens and renew the volunteer spirit that has helped lead our country for generations, that’s why Rep.  John Lewis and I will reintroduce America’s Call to Improve Opportunities Now (ACTION) for National Service Act. I would like to thank the Voices for National Service for the hard work that they do for our country.”
