Help us Fund Peace Corps

Urge Congress to fully fund the Peace Corps' FY16 budget

Congress wants to level-fund Peace Corps. With applications doubled since 2013, 20 new countries requesting more Peace Corps Volunteers, and crucial programming like girls and women empowerment, level funding won't cut it. Please urge Congress to prioritize fully funding the Peace Corps.

Take Action now!

If you'd like to go one step further and meet with your Senators and House Representatives in the coming weeks, please contact J.M. Ascienzo at Together we can do this. Thank you!
