One day a year supporters of the Peace Corps community come together and reach out to members of Congress to advocate for a bigger, better, Peace Corps. Currently there are 63 advocates registered!


Support a bigger Peace Corps. In Fiscal Year 2015 Peace Corps received 23,000 applications, a 40-year record. With only roughly 3,500 applicants accepted per year, almost 20,000 applicants are now being turned away. 

Support a better Peace Corps. For decades, many Returned Peace Corps Volunteers have faced healthcare challenges after returning home. They need legislation to provide them with the healthcare they deserve. 


Donate! Help us reach our goal of $10,000 and...view our donor level perks! The closer we get to our goal the more advocates we can support on March 3rd. It's crucial for Members of Congress to hear directly from their constituents as they make the case for a bigger, better Peace Corps. It costs about $200 per advocate to cover the costs of information packets, scheduling legistlative meetings and providing food, trainings, and orientation.


The action begins with you!  When we reach our goal, we can support 100 NPCA advocates, hold 175 congressional meetings, and distribute key information to all 535 congressional offices. This is your opportunity to be a part of the action!
