Who We Are

We are members of the Peace Corps community past, present, and future. We have seen the impact of poor environmental policy and climate change in countries around the world.

 

What We Do

The purpose of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers for Environmental Action (RPCVs4EA) is to encourage RPCVs and friends to create a community of concern and action for the climate and sustainable practices in our communities.

 

 

 

We Advocate


 

We advocate for the planet by fighting for environmentally friendly legislation. We do this by signing petitions, calling congress, and lobbying etc.
