    Dear Peace Corps Community,

    We're looking forward to our Practical Idealist event this evening and hope you can join us!   We've got a great panel of RPCVs together to talk about Social Change Leadership in Baltimore. We'll also include a tour of our wonderful Peace Corps 50th exhibit, which features RPCV photos and artifacts from around the globe, so come for a personal tour!  We'll have a couple tables for additional Peace Corps photos and artifacts, so please bring along something to share...

    Our event is in the UMBC Library Gallery (1st Floor) and Visitor parking is in the Stadium Lot (near Hilltop and Poplar).   It's not the closest lot, but just walk straight in towards the campus center and find us in the Library.
