Identifying, connecting and supporting former Peace Corps volunteers in local, state and federal political office
Peace Corps to Politics promotes, supports and elects returned Peace Corps Volunteers to political office.
President John F. Kennedy hoped that Peace Corps volunteers would come back from their service with a new perspective of the world and “promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.”
Peace Corps to Politics interprets this goal as volunteers taking what they have learned about the world and using it to serve our US communities Peace Corps volunteers serve because they want to change the world for the better and Peace Corps to Politics believes we can still change the world and our country for the best even after service. By serving as political leaders at the local, state and federal level, we can have a crucial impact on US public policy.
Peace Corps to Politics works to identify returned Peace Corps volunteers who are running for office and demonstrate pride in their Peace Corps Service. Their campaign literature and website will show how their service has inspired them to run for office and how it can help them make a difference
We support Peace Corps alumni who are both running for office and are currently in office who emulate the Peace Corps ideals we learned as volunteers in the way they run their campaigns and changes they wish to make.
We support Peace Corps alumni regardless of political party, as long as they strive to emulate the Peace Corps ideals. We use social media, in-person events, and other ways to let the Peace Corps community and beyond know about these candidates.
We inspire the Peace Corps community be get involved at all levels of political leadership from the school board or town council, to the federal level of US representative, US Senator and the US President
