We created a strong presence for veterans at City Hall

We've been featured on NY1's "Inside City Hall."

Speaking up for veterans on NY1's

We've released an 84-page report--the first of its kind--on the current state of veterans policy in NYC.

Change Is Essential

We've put on a highly successful Forum on NYC Veterans Policy at the New York Public Library.

Panelists, plus John Oliver, at the Forum on NYC Veterans Policy
