A Towering Task: Peace Corps Documentary

As a community, we now have the unique opportunity to fund a world-class documentary that will help reignite Peace Corps's purpose and sense of community, as well as pave the way toward a more peaceful world. A Towering Task is the first comprehensive Peace Corps documentary to address some of today’s toughest questions that we face on a global scale.

Imagine what the world could look like if the voices of tolerance and understanding could drown out the voices of fear and hate. As you probably know, the Peace Corps community - over 220,000 strong - could be one of the most powerful resources our nation has. But it is currently untapped, and many voices go unheard.
