BEST SERIES OF ARTICLES
“An Anniversary. A Pandemic. Peace Corps Response.” | Originally established as Crisis Corps in 1996, Peace Corps Response was created to send Volunteers on short-term, high-impact assignments. An important story for us to tell is that the government program has its roots in grassroots efforts by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who were working in Rwanda when the genocide unfolded. They organized efforts to assist in refugee camps, and they inspired the government agency to harness the experience and commitment that so many Peace Corps Volunteers bring. | Congratulations to the contributing writers in this series, including interns Emi Krishnamurthy, Ellery Pollard, and Sarah Steindl; and writers Hilliard Hicks and Joshua Berman.
“We’re thrilled to share this exciting news,” says editor Steven Boyd Saum, “which is really recognition for the important work done by community members and Volunteers alike over the decades and around the world. It’s the mission of WorldView to tell those stories — and tell them well.”
Last year was the first time in its history that the magazine was recognized with a FOLIO Award, garnering top recognition for both editorial and design excellence.
Winners of the 2022 awards will be announced at the FOLIO Awards Gala on September 13 at the City Winery in New York City.
