What we see informs what we believe we can be--and whether we believe women strengthen our military, our democracy, and our society. Do you see and believe the contributions of women in military service? Do you know the story of Margaret Corbin's military service in combat in Washington Heights, Manhattan, in 1776? Or the stories of women who served in combat from the Revolutionary War through our current era?
Join us for a panel talk, community discussion, and networking event to SEE and BELIEVE in the stories of women veterans! Speakers from the NYC Veterans Alliance, New York Historical Society, Backward Flag Brewing Co., GenEquality, and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America will weigh in on women veterans in history, the consequences of women veterans not being visible, and how women veterans are leading efforts to close gaps in healthcare and services for women veterans and advoacate for equal opportunity for all those who serve, regardless of gender or gender identity. We'll also have a "guess that woman veteran" challenge, with prizes for participants with the most correct answers!
All are invited to spend this fun, informative, interative, and meaningful evening with us. We'll have snacks, plus beverages from Backward Flag Brewing Co. Providers of services for veterans & families will also be on hand to connect.
This event (including refreshments) is completely free. For those wishing to make a donation to support NYC Veterans Alliance's advocacy and programs, we are offering the following special donation rewards:
