Join a national team of citizens whose U.S. Representatives or Senators are on the Congressional subcommittees of Appropriations that fund foreign aid. (To see which Representatives and Senators are on these subcommittees, click here and here.) You will be coached and supported in small-group video chats on effective citizen advocacy, urging these key Members of Congress to support increased funding levels and other improvements for selected global health programs. Currently we are focused on programs addressing tuberculosis, comprehensive primary health care, and increasing the focus on the poor. 

 

We are seeking volunteers and interns who are constituents of these Representatives and Senators, to work about 6 hours a week for a minimum of 6 months. All activities can be conducted remotely.

 

This is an excellent opportunity to address major global health challenges and learn effective advocacy skills. We foster career development opportunities for those who want that.
