      Subject: Question for RPVC's

      Hello,

      My name is Nick and I was a Volunteer in Zambia in 2005, coming home after a few months at site due to safety issues. These days I'm working on a doctorate in psychology.

      For my dissertation I'm looking into the experiences of female Volunteers/RPCVs who experienced sexual assault while in the Peace Corps. It's a very important topic that there is no research on yet.

      I'm using an online survey that takes about 15-20 min in order to hear from survivors of Peace Corps Sexual Assault. There are no questions about the assault itself in the survey. 

      I'm working in collaboration with an organization that advocates for awareness and services to this population, but I was also hoping to spread the word of my study to a larger audience to try and hear from as many survivors as possible.

      Do you think it'd be possible to send the link to the survey out through your email distribution list and/or to post the link on any blog you have? 

      Best wishes, and I look forward to your response,

      Nick Hack (RPCV Zambia 2005)
