In November 2020, the NPCA published Peace Corps Connect to the Future: A Community Report on How to Reimagine, Reshape, and Retool the Peace Corps for a Changed World. The first of the report's main points states, "The Peace Corps community must be a leader in addressing systemic racism".
After closely reviewing the report, the RPCV Alliance for Ukraine wrote a letter to NPCA leaders to share additional recommendations on addressing systemic racism. NPCA President Glenn Blumhorst responded with praise for the Alliance's "exemplary work with Peace Corps Ukraine to implement reforms and improvements in the field."
It is your efforts that drive this work forward. We invite you to read our letter, and we welcome your efforts to keep the conversation going and the changes coming.
