Thanks to all of you who sent a message to NYS Senator Charles ‘Chuck’ Schumer and NYS Senator Kirsten Gillibrand 

requesting them to sign the FY21 Peace Corps Funding ‘Dear Colleague Letter’.

Advocacy for Peace Corp funding has never been more important than now.


The Buffalo RPCVs and NPCA meet each year with our Congressional Representatives, urging support for legislation that:

  Maintains or increases funding for the Peace Corps program

♦  Protects the health and safety of currently serving volunteers

♦  Honors and supports those who have completed their Peace Corps service
