Rally with Us! At 1PM on Valentine's Day, the NYC Veterans Alliance, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 72, and Service Together are calling on Mayor de Blasio and our City government to LOVE OUR VETERANS by showing it in the City's Fiscal Year 2018 Budget!
SHOW US, DON'T JUST TELL US!
We appreciate that our Mayor and City officials thank us often for our service. But the best way to SHOW appreciation for veterans and our families is to FUND us in the budget.
NOW IS THE TIME TO GET LOUDER!
Because we got loud when the Mayor's initial proposal cut funding for the new NYC Department of Veterans' Services--he had to listen, and has walked back those cuts. Now is the time to get even louder--because our fight doesn't just end there. We have veteran homeowners struggling to keep up with ballooning school tax costs who are in need of relief. We have veterans and families across this city struggling to afford any basic housing at all--while the promise of the G.I. Bill of Rights has included for generations the ability to own a home wherever we call home. Our city has a long way to go before we can say our elected officials are doing all they can to ensure our nation's promises to veterans are being upheld within our five boroughs.
NYC GOVERNMENT: SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR VETERANS!
Arrive at 12:45 PM so you can get through City Hall security; rally starts at 1 PM sharp!
LET'S RALLY on FEBRUARY 14th!
