Our advocacy team has been working hard preparing for the March 3rd National Day of Action. We have been updating congressional contact information. We have been posting resources on the state pages of http://morepeacecorps.org/.
Another thing the advocacy team has been doing is compiling lists of all the great comments from the More Peace Corps Petition into categories by state and district. These comments will be taken to Capitol Hill on March 3rd to be given to the senators and representatives so they can see that their constituents support the More Peace Corps Campaign.
You can also get involved with the More Peace Corps Campaign by meeting with the district offices in your state. Florida, Illinois, and Missouri advocates are already reaching out to their lawmakers in to give them a heads up on the National Day of Action.
We are getting ready for our March 3rd day of action. This is the day that is most important for volunteers to get involved in the push for More Peace Corps. We are looking for volunteers to join us on Capitol Hill on March 3rd to bring information about the More Peace Corps Campaign to different congressional offices. Do you want to help us in DC on our National Day of Action? We are halfway to our goal of 30 volunteers. If you want to help our efforts for pushing More Peace Corps and you do not live in DC you can help us by calling or emailing your senator and representative on March 3rd.
If you want more information about the More Peace Corps National Day of Action or if you want to volunteer you can email the advocacy team at [email protected] or you can email Jonathan Pearson at [email protected].
Join our advocacy team in their push for a bigger, better, bolder Peace Corps!
