Family, community activists call for gun reform at memorial for slain toddler

Kimberly Mitchell, an Americorps Vista volunteer working with Total Action in Progress, said organizers created Saturday’s event not only to provide fun for children in memory of Aryah, but also to provide gun safety information to parents and other residents.

The event was sponsored by several groups, including TAP, Blue Ridge Coalition Against Gun Violence, and the Community Outreach Program with the Trinity United Methodist Church.

A booth providing free voter registration at the event featured a poster with Aryah’s picture that read “Aryah will never vote. Pledge to vote for her.” Other organizers offered free gun locks to attendees.

Mitchell said organizers hope to make the memorial an annual event where attendees can not only remember Aryah, but also advocate reforms to Virginia’s gun laws.

Organizers did not mention specific changes to Virginia’s gun laws that they would favor.

“Even though she was a beautiful young girl, she will not be forgotten,” Mitchell said. “These families are still grieving, these families are still hurting because they never had a proper moment to let go.

Leahy, Sanders, Welch Announce $2.1 Million in AmeriCorps Funding for Vermont

(202) 225-4115

VERMONT – Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT) today announced that Vermont has received $2.1 million in AmeriCorps funding. The grants are from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency for volunteering and service programs.

In a joint statement, Leahy, Sanders, and Welch said, “Since its inception, AmeriCorps has made an enormous impact on the lives of Vermonters. This year alone, more than 2000 AmeriCorps volunteers are serving in 450 locations across Vermont, supporting affordable housing, education, working on projects to improve water quality, providing services to veterans and their families, and more. We are excited to announce these three grants today, which will allow these volunteers to continue tackling some of the toughest issues facing our state with dedication and passion.”

Leahy, Sanders and Welch voted in support of the highest-ever spending levels to support volunteer and service programs in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, signed into law by President Obama in December. This bill included a $39.9 million increase over the previous year to enable communities in Vermont to expand service opportunities. The delegation has since supported increases to funding for CNCS in the ongoing appropriations process that will determine spending levels for Fiscal Year 2017.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
