Dodd, DeLauro to join Obama for signing of service act

U.S. Senator Chris Dodd, D-CT, a returned Peace Corps volunteer and a longtime advocate for national service, and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, CT-3, will join President Barack Obama for the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act signing ceremony today.

The event will take place at 4 p.m. at The SEED School of Washington, D.C., an innovative public school that caters to underserved students who may face challenges in school and at home.

The Serve America Act includes large parts of Dodd and DeLauro’s “Service for All Ages ” initiative, which is a group of four bills that will expand and strengthen opportunities for Americans of all ages to serve their communities, according to a statement from Dodd's office.
