RPCV-NJ has an existing committee of individuals who have expressed an interest in working on Legislative Advocacy issues.
Our organization follows the lead of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) which, on their recently
revised website, has established
very well laid out
advocacy section providing
information on key issues and an easy way to connect you with your specific legislators by entering your street address and zip code.
If you can participate on this committee, often by just emailing or calling your legislator (or visiting their NJ office if you have the opportunity to do so individually or as part of a RPCV-NJ organized appointment), please contact:
Joanne Brandwood at firstname.lastname@example.org
You would then be added to the committee to get committee
messages about important legislative issues. Note that these advocacy messages will not be overwhelming.
