A message from the National Peace Corps Association on March 10, 2017
 
#ProtectPeaceCorps
 

This past weekend, the Trump Administration confirmed that it will propose "fairly dramatic reductions" to International Affairs in a budget to be released on or around March 16. The cuts, reportedly upwards of 37%, would have significant impact on America's diplomatic and development programs, including the Peace Corps.  

To ensure the future of America's greatest institution, NPCA is launching the #ProtectPeaceCorps campaign to mobilize our community and secure no less than level funding of $410 million for the Peace Corps, and $60 billion for the International Affairs Budget.

NPCA is currently working with Advocacy Coordinators and Affiliate Group Leaders to mobilize the community. Stay tuned for more announcements and actions.
