Archiving Our Legacy: A Capstone for our 30th Anniversary

April 13, 2021: As a capstone to mark 30 years of community, advocacy and accomplishments, LGBT Returned Peace Corps Volunteers today gifted its story archive to the Peace Corps Community Archive at the American University Library.

Everyone can continue to access and navigate our historic archive via the American University Library portal at https://wayback.archive-it.org/1435/*/https:/lgbtrpcv.org/

Our stories of service will now be preserved for future generations interested in the global impact of queer Peace Corps Volunteers.

With this legacy preserved, our organization is going on hiaitus and closing a chapter begun in 1991. Read about some of our milestone accomplishments in this post by our longtime national coordinator Mike Learned.

If you are interested in organizing a queer RPCV affiliate organization for the next generation of Peace Corps Volunteers, please contact the National Peace Corps Association.

We thank our members, contibutors and partners around the world for an incredible 30 years!

In service and frienship,
The LGBT RPCV Steering Committee
