Peace Corps Moving Forward: A Series of Town Hall Meetings on Sex- and Gender-Based Violence

In 2019, 1 out of every 3 Peace Corps Volunteers experienced sexual assault. Legislation like the Kate Puzey Act (2013) and the Farr/Castle Act (2018) were passed to protect Volunteers, but more work needs to be done to ensure the safety of everyone who serves in the Peace Corps. Join RPCVs of Washington D.C. and Boston Area RPCVs starting Wednesday, October 13 for a 4-part series of events on sex- and gender-based violence. These sessions will include storytelling and a community-building circle, a session specific to the experiences of BIPOC RPCVs, and the development of recommendations moving forward. Register below to receive one link for all four events. Please feel free to attend as many as you would like. The Zoom link will be provided by email and a calendar invite for each event.

  • TOOTH AND CLAW NOW FOR DONKYS’ YEARS
    It’s not even behind the eyes usually, but blasting fire up from the front of these grand inquisitions descended from Cain giving you chapter and verse on your beads iterated throughout your tapestry.
    Regularity is a thing you thought you could count on, but you hadn’t thought about inflation and you starting knocking down the walls of intention.
    Roads to utopias pave themselves with uneven and unexpected ironies. They go underground. What begins in hope shifts failures.
    Misinformation transforms to disinformation fusing shelterness and homlessness that look like nothing you had ever imagined what nature actually is evolving toward.
    How could you know? When you look into the cave there are no trees, yellow brick roads, right moments.
    Life is a composition in missing notes between states and making it as you go.
