Welcome to Advocate U, an online university created to inspire, educate, and give you the resources you need to be a leader in the fight against global poverty. We’re so glad you’re here!

Engage for Action

All too often, we hear that too few Americans support legislative action on global poverty-fighting issues, so our elected officials do not consider them a priority. As a CARE advocate you have the power to change the status quo by urging Members of Congress to act. Each action you take to reach your Member of Congress will add strength to our movement and impact policies and commitments that address global poverty. Check out our resources below and learn about how you can take action!
