Help Us Send Your Message to the Next Congress

“Making peace with others who share our world is more productive, less expensive, and longer-lasting than making war. Living and working with others toward achieving their development goals not only provides them with assistance, but also educates us Americans in understanding and valuing other cultures and ways of living. “

In a matter of weeks, the new 113th Congress will take office. With dozens of new lawmakers, continued fiscal challenges and ongoing concerns about partisan bickering, it is more important than ever for the Peace Corps community to convey unity and the power of positive accomplishments to our lawmakers.
We want to help bring your voice to Capitol Hill. Do your part today by sharing your thoughts on why the Peace Corps is important to our nation, and the positive benefits the Peace Corps experience provides not just overseas, but here at home as well.
Please follow this link to take our brief survey.
Then, please pass this message along to friends, family and others. This survey is open to anyone who believes in the importance of the Peace Corps. Even if you did not serve but want to share why the Peace Corps is important, we will be happy to take your comments to Capitol Hill.
We will put your comments to use during our upcoming National Day of Action and throughout the 113th Congress.
