Join the UNICEF Congressional Action Team (CAT) in Philadelphia and our monthly national calls to hear from global leaders, learn how to be an effective advocate, and contribute to our grassroots movement for change. Supported and trained by UNICEF USA staff, CAT members engage with their Members of Congress to cultivate champions for children. We currently have 17 Congressional Action Teams in the United States, among them includes our Philadelphia CAT Team! CAT members in each city meet together once a month for a national conference call with guest speakers. During these calls, members share grassroots victories, practice articulating the issues, and prepare to take action together. Actions include writing and visiting elected officials. You don’t have to be an expert on Congress or the issues affecting the world’s children to join. Congressional Action Team members include anyone who is of voting age (18+), loves the work of UNICEF, and has a strong desire to make a difference.
