Recent advocacy news from the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) is the endorsement of "Rethinking the Battlefield," which is U.S. Senator Chris Murphy's (D-Conn) alternative budget proposal representing a powerful vision for American leadership in International Affairs. This proposal includes funding for 15,000 Peace Corps Volunteers by 2022.
While growing Peace Corps to 15,000 Peace Corps Volunteers in the field is an exciting vision, the current focus for advocacy is the request to maintain level funding of Peace Corps at $410 million. NPCA has assembled great resources to help with advocacy efforts ranging from details on how to connect with elected officials to how to submit letters to the editor or otherwise gain media attention about the importance of Peace Corps.
