Make it official - People to People Ambassador Program day in Montgomery, AL
In 1987, a delegation of Student Ambassadors left Montgomery, Alabama for the USSR. With this delegation, People to People Ambassador Programs became the first student organization to go to the USSR. (And did we mention it was during the cold war?). This delegation truly embodied the spirit of Eisenhower's people to people mission. The students met with their Eastern European counterparts and, wait for it, Mikhail Gorbachev! In honor of this delegation and their mission of cultural connection, we are petitioning the City of Montgomery to make an official People to People Ambassador Programs day! So, if you believe in the People to People mission sign this petition, we'll be taking it to the mayor!
