ABOUT CARE Advocates Philadelphia
Advocates in Philadelphia are part of a growing national network dedicated to supporting CARE and its mission to end global poverty. We do this by engaging our local communities through education, advocacy, and fundraising on issues around health, hunger, education, women’s empowerment, economic development, refugees, and natural disasters. We have lots going on throughout the year including film screenings, talks from experts in the field, fitness fundraisers, a book club, advocacy sessions, and invitations to VIP events.
