NPCA Capitol Hill Day of Action

 
 

During NPCA's National Days of Action in Support of the Peace Corps please join us in Washington, DC for our Capitol Hill Day of Action on Thursday, February 28, 2019. With high supply and demand for volunteers, communities all over the world in need, people-to-people relationships increasingly critical, and the need to pass legislation to help make the Peace Corps the best it can be, join us to tell America's lawmakers to prioritize Peace Corps funding and legislation. Sign up now!

More information and logistics will be sent in the coming weeks to the email address you provide below. Our Capitol Hill advocacy day starts early in the morning and lasts all day, with an end-of-day celebration. Please plan your trip to the nation's capital accordingly.

Urgent questions or concerns? Email Jonathan Pearson at jonathan@peacecorpsconnect.org with the subject "Capitol Hill Day of Action."

Representatives and their staff have a well-established process in place for meeting with constituents. They make time for this and value the effort we make to connect with them.
