You should be referring lawyers on a pro bono basis to volunteers who have been wronged by Peace Corps. The ABA has that ability. Thousands of Volunteers have been wronged by the agency in Safety and Health cover up of cases and you should be spear heading a class action law suit against the agency.

Many women were raped and blamed for it. Many volunteers were completely lost their lives in service and many others nearly lost their lives in service due to violent acts during their service that Peace Corps refuses to recognize.

Helen your service or another that may work with you may have been good, but for many others their service may have been a good exhange but the agency has completely cheated them by blaming them for their incidents in service.

Do the right thing

One can only agree with Do THE RIGHT THING.
I sent my case to ABA years ago asking for aid.
Hugh Pickens is the only person who has made it possible for cases to be brought to attention.
Thank You Hugh.

I am glad to stand corrected. Sorry. Thank You for taking on important cases. But you didn't hear MY case which I sent to you several times which website name is censored, is not permitted to leave my laptop. Two chapters are in the PCOL library under malaria. Vital Documentation is in the same chapters in the website. I sent you a CD with many documents.
