Blue Star Families Racial Equity Initiative Focus Group

Blue Star Families has partnered with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University to better understand the experiences of racially diverse military families. 

For the Racial Equity Initiative, they are recruiting military spouses, veterans, and spouses of veterans to participate in Focus Groups to gain valuable perspectives on the experiences of military families of color (to include multi-racial and Spanish-speaking families). They greatly appreciate your participation in this project to enable better understanding of the unique experiences of all military families, and develop and implement programming to meet the needs of diverse military families.
