Office of the Inspector General Request to Survivors

First Response Action has received the following request from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for Peace Corps. If you are a survivor of sexual or physical violence while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer, please contact the OIG at OIG@peacecorps.gov to share your experience.

The Peace Corps Office of Inspector General (OIG) is conducting a review of the agency's guidelines and protocols related to its response to the rape and sexual assault of a Volunteer. Individuals who would like to provide the OIG with any information relative to the crime of rape or sexual assault during Volunteer service and the agency's response and support to survivors may contact the OIG by email ( OIG@peacecorps.gov ), or by mail at: Peace Corps, Attn: Inspector General, P.O. Box 57129, Washington DC 20037-7129. All information or complaints will be treated confidentially unless OIG determines during the course of an investigation of criminal, civil, and administrative misconduct that disclosure is unavoidable.

There is no limitation on the terms of service for the OIG's investigation. You could have served anywhere from 1961 to today. Feel free to email First Response Action if you have questions: firstresponseaction@gmail.com.
