Legal Services NYC presents the workshop "Understanding the Importance of Military Culture and the Unique Issues for Veterans in Family Court" on July 19, 3pm. Military veterans undergo experiences very different from that of the vast majority of the American people. Military life, particularly if it involves combat, indelibly shapes veterans and often has significant implications for their family, housing, education, and employment. This class will explore the diversity of veterans' experiences, veteran-client interactions with counsel, and documentary and testimonial evidence from veterans. Then, they'll examine how best to offer quality representation for veterans in family court cases, and before social service agencies and other organizations involved in family matters. At the conclusion of the session, you'll have a richer understanding of how military culture can better inform our work with our veteran-clients in family court and in other venues.

See Bullet Catchers at the Judson Memorial Church July 20-August 5.
Set in the not too distant future, Bullet Catchers follows the first official mixed gender infantry unit in the U.S. Army, from training to deployment. In the throes of war, they must face what it means to be a soldier, a unit, and a part of history.
Told in part through dance, music, and poetry, Bullet Catchers is a new, collaboratively written play based on interviews with current service members and veterans, as well as members of the military-civilian ensemble.
