National Days of Action: March 3 - 15, 2017

2017 marks the 13th year NPCA will hold its National Days of Action. Find an event near you on the map below. 

 

 

This year we are holding "Days" of Action between March 3rd and 15th, to prioritize advocacy mobilization in your local communities. Our goal is at least fifty local events around the country, involving a minimum of 500 advocates.

Our National Days of Action comes at a very critical time. You will be participating during the early stages of the appropriations process, and provide a strong initial boost to our efforts to support strong funding for the Peace Corps. You will also help kick off a renewed drive for the re-introduction of Peace Corps health legislation. And, with a new Congress with more than 50 new members and many lawmakers receiving new committee assignments, you will be essential in our efforts to introduce the Peace Corps to new policy makers.

Leave-behind Materials. Please review the below materials to learn about what issues NPCA is advocating for nationwide and on Capitol Hill. *Please note that some materials are not yet ready, and will be made available asap.
