Complete this form to let Peace Corps know https://goo.gl/forms/niRnwMiNhZM5IEUx1
This is open to all RPCVs, HQ staff, and their friends and families. Join us in marching in the Pride parade and carry your host country’s flag. We only have one flag per country, so they are first come first serve. Non-RPCV friends and family are more than welcome to join in the parade with us and carry a flag as well. Information regarding where and when to meet will be emailed out the week before the parade. If interested, please complete the form above by June 6 to let us know you’re coming.
Also, share your story!
This year’s theme for Pride is “Unapologetically Proud” so Peace Corps is asking RPCVs to share moments of pride from their service. Meet your partner in service? Start a Peace Corps family? Change someone’s life for the better? We want to know!
Stories and photos will be used to create a month-long display in the lobby here at HQ.
Please submit your stories and photos by May 26th to Justin at [email protected].
