Advocacy and the RPCVs of Colorado
The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) of Colorado work with the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) to advocate on behalf of future, current and returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Through talking with the Colorado Congressional Delegation, the RPCVs of Colorado urge Congressional action to support legislation that:
* Maintains or increases funding for the Peace Corps program
* Protects the health and safety of currently serving volunteers
* Honors those who have completed their Peace Corps Service.
Additionally, the RPCVs of Colorado partner with the legislators from the Colorado House and Senate to recognize the importance and impact of Peace Corps.
Interested in demonstrating your support for Peace Corps?
Respond to calls to action from the RPCVs of Colorado or NPCA and contact your members of Congress about particular issues. Also, look for further advocacy opportunities via the website, future newsletter articles, and updates at meetings of the RPCVs of Colorado. You can also check out the NPCA Advocacy webpage to learn more about current advocacy efforts and past successes at http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/advocacy/.
