Our advocacy work delivers lasting solutions by promoting policy reforms that foster strong, resilient communities. These policy reforms ensure that current and future generations will benefit from the changes we make today.

Join Our Community

Our network of more than 27,000 CARE Action advocates are dedicated to change – changing U.S. foreign policy and changing lives for the better around the globe. Our advocates represent a diverse range of backgrounds, experience levels, and perspectives, but we all share a common passion – to eradicate poverty and empower women and girls worldwide. 

CARE Action’s team of Regional Advocacy Managers (RAM) are spread across the U.S. to be your connection to CARE’s legislative agenda and global work on-the-ground. One of our four coordinators are available to work directly with you on influencing your Members of Congress, organizing local events, conducting in-district meetings, submitting pieces to your local media, and participating in national CARE events.
