Dinosaurs protest proposed budget cuts to AmeriCorps

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) – Dozens of dinosaurs took over Washington DC Wednesday.

People in inflatable dino costumes gathered in front of the capitol to protest President Trump’s proposed budget cuts to national service programs — like AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps.

AmeriCorps supports the work of 80,000 volunteers around the country.

The group said if the funding is cut, national service programs will be extinct.
