New Year & New Motivation-February 1, 2017
Politics in the year of 2017 is crazy! Now more than ever, as RPCVs we need to become active in our communities. Lets be productive. Many of us have participated in protests, marches, and calling our representatives for many reasons. As a nonpartisan group PC to Politics wants to encourage participation on all sides of the isle to ensure our country to move forward. Here are the current ongoings from our RPCV elected officials.

State Senator of Alabama Arthur Orr
Recently State Senator Arthur Orr had meeting with the Alabama Governor for the possibility of being appointed to the US Senate, if current Senator Jeff Sessions gets confirmed as Attorney General. Though some of us in our community would not like to see this confirmation to go through, at least we will get an ally in the Senate. Let see what happens.
