Join the Lunch & Learn: Changes at VA for Women Veterans in the Deborah Sampson Act on February 25, 12-1pm (EST).
On February 25, New York State Division of Veterans’ Services and the National Association of State Women Veteran Coordinators (NASWVC) are hosting a lunchtime conversation via Zoom with leaders who were instrumental in introducing the original Deborah Sampson bill, advocating for its passage, and adding the many detailed and substantive provisions in the bill’s final version that have now become law.
This will be a rare opportunity to hear from leading advocates on why the Deborah Sampson Act was needed, what it means for women veterans historically, and some rare and often unheard stories about the process of getting the public support needed for this bill to finally become law.
If you have a question in advance to ask the panel, please feel free to email ([email protected]). They'll also take as many audience questions as they can within the time they have.
