Hi Everyone: Just a quick update from the NPCA Advocacy Program

President Kevin Quigley will be a guest Thursday, August 25th at noon on the
Kojo Nnamdi show on WAMU radio (88.5 FM). Peace Corps, including the
military recruitment issue will be part of the hour-long discussion, which
will also feature former directors Carol Bellamy and Mark Schneider. Here

WE ARE BACK! Jonathan Pearson has just returned from vacation, which
included some visits with RPCVs in New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
It was great to meet folks. Special thanks to the Big Apple, Albany,
Rochester and Long Island groups for hospitality at their group gatherings.
Similarly, Campaign Coordinator Jayne Thomisee has just returned from a week
of visits with RPCVs across California to introduce members to our trade
campaign with Oxfam America. Special thanks to the NorCal, Sacramento,
Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and Orange County groups for their hospitality.
UPDATES SOON: We will be updating our advocacy pages over the next few
weeks, including further information on the military recruitment issue. Stay
tuned for further updates. In the meantime:
-As part of the trade campaign with Oxfam, a speakers tour with west African
cotton farmers is planned for mid-September (Sept. 10 - 16) in California
and Illinois. Contact Jayne at mailto:campaign@... for more details on
the tour or other aspects of the NPCA/Oxfam collaboration.
