World Vision supporters across the country advocate for children through emails to Congress and other online activism. But advocacy doesn’t stop there. You can make an even more powerful impact for kids around the world by meeting in-person or virtually with your members of Congress and their staff.

As a World Vision Advocate, you'll...

  • Meet in-person and virtually with your members of Congress and their staff at least twice a year - we'll coach you through the process!
  • Advocate for funding and legislation that creates positive, sustainable change for children and communities around the world. We advocate for issues like the Hunger as a Weapon Resolution, Keeping Girls in School, Ending Early Childhood Marriage, and for the importance of Foreign Assistance in the international affairs budget.
  • Develop your advocacy skills through unique training opportunities and exclusive resources
  • Plan on investing 2-3 hours per quarter to learn about the legislation we will advocate for and taking action. The majority of our engagement, both learning and meeting with Members, happens in a virtual setting.

Frequently Asked Questions





"At first, I put a lot of pressure on

myself to convince my representatives

to 'do something.' But God totally changed

my heart and perspective…I could show up

to the meetings without an agenda to promote,

but instead with a genuine desire to reflect God’s

love and compassion.”

– Advocate Anna Kostrivas, AZ
