District Meeting Days
The next big NPCA Advocacy action will not be on Capitol Hill…
It won’t be in Washington, DC…
With your help, the next big NPCA Advocacy action will be this August…right in your backyard!
During the month of August, many lawmakers will be back home in their districts, connecting with constituents. We want you to keep them company!
For the third year in a row, the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) is working with you to coordinate August District Advocacy meetings.
Our Goal? 70 meetings all across the country!
Why District Meetings?
In advocacy, there is no more important voice than the voice of constituents, meeting with lawmakers or congressional staff to share views on key issues and ask lawmakers for support. While Capitol Hill is ground zero for policy making, it can be difficult for many citizens (due to time and expense) to come to Washington.
All lawmakers have one or more satellite offices in their district (or state for Senators) to provide constituent service. These offices can also serve as a venue for meetings with local staff, and lawmakers when they are home.
During the month of August, we hope you can organize or take part in Peace Corps advocacy meetings in your state.
Details for this year’s August District Meeting Days are in the works. For now, contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in organizing one or more congressional meetings in your neck of the woods!
