The RPCVs for Environmental Action are committed to action, and we believe the best way to do that is to partner with other like-minded organizations. Together, we reach new audiences and promote our mutual message of environmental justice.
350.org uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, take money out of the companies that are heating up the planet, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all. 350's network extends to 188 countries.
Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA) they train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community. Their network is throughout the US, but their model is being adopted in multiple countries. We have formed a Peace Corps Action Team under the umbrella of CCL, to help raise awareness and rally support among returned Peace Corps volunteers.
National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) is a worldwide umbrella organization that supports the 220,000 serving volunteers, returned volunteers, and staff. Through them we advocate for Peace Corps legislation and funding (NPCA is not Peace Corps), and ultimately we anticipate running environmental advocacy programs through their high-quality state and federal advocacy platform.
