tHIS SECTION OF THE awsc cONGRESSIONAL pROPOSALS CALLs FOR awsc VOLUNTEERS TO SERVE WITH OTHER NATIONS Service CORPS, WHICH WE HOPE AND EXPECT A ROBUST awsc WILL INSPIRE OTHERS TO create if they presently lack such a corps.
The 21st century is late enough for us and the world to field peaceful, productive teams that work and meet on the fields of development rather than warfare.
8) sERVING WITH OTHER NATIONS’ VOLUNTEERS. In 1989 Peoples Lobby’s executive director sought to have the Marin Community Foundation fund a model American Soviet Peace Corps (ASPC). The ASPC would have had American and Soviet Peace Corps (ASPC) recruits train, work, and live together for two years while addressing worldwide developmental problems. The Marin Community Foundation failed to fund the proposal. However, then Congresswoman Boxer introduced the proposal as House Resolution 1807 in 1989 during the 101st Congress. http://worldservicecorps.us/hr1807congress%2031289.htmThe ASPC was a doable, common sense, logical approach to reducing world tensions while dealing with the problems that lead to future warfare and depravity. Had we implemented the ASPC then, the world would be a lot healthier and saner today.
(A) The AWSC office established under this bill will establish joint volunteer service programs with other countries, such as outlined under Congresswoman Boxer’s HR 1807 introduced in the 101st Congress. Each nation will cover the costs for its volunteers.
(B) Implementing this section of the bill would mean that Chinese and Americans, French and Americans, Mexicans and Americans, Iranians and Americans, Afghanis and Americans, Pakistanis and Americans, Somalians and Americans, etc., will have the opportunity to serve, work, and learn together on problems that exist in their and other nations in our Global Village.
