SAGEVets, in collaboration with the New York State Division of Veterans' Services will host a Restoration of Honor Virtual Conference on Thursday, November 18, 6:00-7:30pm.
Currently, there are five states that have passed Restoration of Honor (ROH) legislation designed to restore honor to LGBT veterans who were discharged for their sexual orientation or gender identity. SAGEVets is honored to bring together representatives from Rhode Island, Illinois, Connecticut, and of course New York to talk about their respective ROH legislation. Please join them for engaged conversation focusing on how this legislation came about, what is still needed, and how other states can get involved. This is their first-ever national program, available virtually! They are also offering CLE credit continuing legal education to encourage our nation's finest attorney advocates to learn more about this meaningful legislation. This conference is free and open to the public.
The esteemed panel includes:
Illinois State Representative Joyce Mason
Colorado State Representative David Ortiz
