Welcome to CARE’s Advocacy
Who We Are
We are a community of passionate, globally-minded individuals who believe in justice and equality for all. Together, we speak up alongside marginalized and vulnerable populations around the world to ensure their voices are heard and needs are met.
What We Do
Through the power of our voices, we urge U.S. leaders to pass policy reforms that foster strong, resilient communities, promote lasting solutions to poverty, and save lives globally. Everything we do centers on women and girls — their potential, their leadership, and their unique needs — because we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
In 2023, CARE worked in 111 countries, reaching more than 174 million people through 1,600 projects. CARE Action and its advocates have championed numerous policy wins – with support from both sides of the aisle – for progress on food and nutrition security, women’s empowerment, global funding, and more. These policy reforms ensure that current and future generations will benefit from the changes we make today. More information on our advocacy issues can be found here.
CARE’s Campus Connection Program
The CARE Campus Connection featuring Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is one of the three pillars of our ongoing partnership between CARE USA and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Campus Connection program will build on the interest from Delta Days and establish a school year long program that partners with specific Delta Sigma Theta chapters. This program will expand on Delta Sigma Theta chapter’s abilities to bring new voices to CARE’s advocacy, provide learning opportunities for collegiate students, and boost CARE’s community-level engagement with members of Congress and their staff.
Specific goals of the program are as follows:
- Diversify CARE’s network of advocate leaders and recruit new college-aged advocates to engage in our advocacy work.
- Host 10 CARE campus engagement activities (two per chapter) during the school year.
- Bring at least five new Delta advocates to CARE on Capitol Hill in October 2023. Dates of the event are Oct 18-19.
