Bring your service home!

Join in NPCA Day of Action!

 One of the most important ways RPCVs can bring the world home is by sharing your Peace Corps experience with your members of Congress. Join 100 others on Capitol HillMarch 3rd to urge a bigger and better Peace Corps. Last year, the Peace Corps community came together in 2015 to score a tremendous victory, securing a $30.5 million budget increase for the Peace Corps, and providing the highest funding level ever!


Help us keep the momentum going! Sign up here for the National Peace Corps Association's 12th annual National Day of Action.

Date:
 Thursday March 3, 2016
Time: 8 am - 5 pm with reception to follow (you are welcome to join for half or full day) 
Where: Capitol Hill
What: Visiting with members of Congress and their staff to share why Peace Corps matters to you and why its volunteers deserve their support.
 
This year we want 100 advocates to join us on Capitol Hill to lobby for a bigger and better Peace Corps. Along with increased Peace Corps funding, we will also advocate for better health support for returning volunteers and urge membership in the House Peace Corps Caucus. 

Sign up now


We especially need the involvement of RPCVs who are registered to vote elsewhere in the country. It's extremely important to join us if you are a constituent of members of the Senate or House Appropriations Subcommittee for State/Foreign Operations.
