When taking part in Peace Corps related advocacy initiatives, we try to provide Peace Corps specific background materials for your state and updates on lawmaker actions.
State Resources to Support Your Efforts
Below you will find state specific materials updated as of 2/7/14. When reviewing the actions of your lawmakers, the resources below can serve as an excellent resource through which to thank them for support of the Peace Corps. Do use this information judiciously, as a lack of indicated support does not always mean the lawmaker is not supporting the Peace Corps. As one example, congressional Dear Colleague letters often go to a key Appropriations Subcommittee. Some lawmakers may not sign such a letter because they are/were on the Subcommittee (or Full Committee) and traditionally don’t sign such letters.
