It’s Coming! National Day of Action
By Jonathan Pearson on Friday, January 13th, 2012
It’s becoming a rite of spring. Just as sure as the Cherry Blossoms will soon return in Washington, advocates of the National Peace Corps Association will return to Capitol Hill this March 1st during Peace Corps Week.
But that’s only half the story and – depending on you – the smaller half of the story behind the 8th Annual National Day of Action in Support of the Peace Corps.
The Day of Action is designed so that even if you can’t join us in Washington, you can still take part. On Thursday March 1st, we want all supporters of the Peace Corps community to take five or ten minutes to make a phone call, write a letter, send an email, send a fax. We will provide you with the key action items and materials you will need to take quick, effective action.
And while you are taking action from home, dozens of advocates will be visiting every congressional office to reinforce the messages you are sending.
Can we get 75 advocates to the Hill this March 1st?
If you can join us in Washington, your first step is to contact email@example.com to let us know you can attend (Note: the Day of Action will start early in the morning and run throughout the day).
March is an important time to make your voice heard. It will mark the start of the Fiscal Year 2013 consideration of Peace Corps funding. And, we will want to continue on the great work from last year and pass Peace Corps commemorative legislation.
Check out this video from last year’s Day of Action.
Save the date and get ready to take action on March 1st!
