State of the American Veterans Conference 2017 Photos

The State of the American Veteran Conference (Sept. 28-29, 2017) brought together more than 300 people to discuss the transition issues facing combat veterans, student veterans, women veterans, Guard and Reserve service members, and children and families. We had keynotes by Kayla Williams, director of the VA’s Center for Women Veterans; Josh Newman, California state senator and chair of the VA committee; and Chase Millsap, director of impact strategy at We Are The Mighty.

After spending the first day learning about the most pressing issues facing these populations, conference participants worked hard developing policy and practice recommendations.
