Texas RPCVs present "A Towering Task" 🎉

You’re invited! Join your fellow Texas returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) for a virtual screening of “A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps”, the first feature documentary to chronicle the remarkable history of the Peace Corps while considering its future at a critical juncture. This online event is brought to you by the Heart of Texas Peace Corps Association, Houston Area RPCVs, North Texas Peace Corps Association, RPCVs of San Antonio, and the Museum of the Peace Corps Experience. 

The documentary can be watched online from Friday 6/26 at 6PM through Saturday 6/27 via a special screening video link sent to all registrants. A live Zoom Q&A with the film’s director, Alana DeJoseph, will take place on Saturday 6/27 at 7:00 PM CST. This virtual event is free and open to the general public with donations first reimbursing the screening fee and all proceeds benefiting racial justice nonprofits in our cities. Register today to reserve your spot on the couch amongst great virtual company!
