As part of National Peace Corps Association’s 20th annual National Days of Advocacy in Support of the Peace Corps, our community will again gather on Capitol Hill to make the case for a strong, improved, and well financed Peace Corps. We hope you’ll join us in-person in Washington, D.C., for our impactful Capitol Hill Advocacy Day to connect with other RPCV advocates and urge lawmakers to support the Peace Corps.
The registration deadline for our Capitol Hill Advocacy Day is Monday, February 26, 2024. No prior experience is necessary.
Our event begins with a morning gathering. Throughout the day, teams of advocates will meet with members of Congress or their staff. We will end the day with a celebratory reception.
As we are preparing for more complex logistics related to health, security and financial concerns, we ask for your help in the following ways:
- Please respect our registration deadline to give us sufficient time to plan for your visit: Registration will close on Monday, February 26, 2024.
- Please register as soon as you have high certainty you can be with us on March 7th. Our Hill Day planning software company charges us a fee for each registrant, including those who drop out at the last minute. And, registrants who end up not attending (or seeking to register at the last minute) can seriously impact our meeting scheduling.
More information on venues, exact times, and logistics will be sent in the coming weeks to the email address you provide below. Our Capitol Hill advocacy day starts early in the morning and lasts all day, with an end-of-day celebration. Please plan your trip to the nation’s capital accordingly.
