100 People Will Dress Up As Dinosaurs To Protest Americorps Budget Cut

Recommended Posts

Just another day in Washington, DC.....




First the life-size squirrels came out to tell Republicans that a proposed healthcare provision was "nuts." Now, people dressed as dinosaurs rising from the long dead are warning against the extinction of the Corporation of National and Community Service, which funds tens of thousands of Americorps positions each year.

As a protest theme, "extinction makes the most sense given that there are 1 million people who have done AmeriCorps over the past 20 years," says Aly Ferguson, the director of communications for the non-profit Service Year Alliance. "It's a species of its own and all of these people who are in it right now would have no one else to follow in their footsteps."
