Leave No Veteran Behind

LNVB’s annual advocacy event was a success!

June 3, 2015

LNVB holds an annual advocacy event in DC and their most recent event was a huge success. This year’s topic, “Creating Veteran Pipelines Into Civic Solutions,” addressed ways businesses, legislative leaders and community members can leverage veterans as assets in communities across America. While their military service is lauded, veterans often return to communities and confront barriers to employment and community engagement. Panelists illustrated how leadership and technical skills acquired in the military can translate into the civic sphere. LNVB seeks to reframe the conversation around traditional notions and expectations of veterans and how these individuals can serve as innovative resources for community efforts, business solutions, and social enterprises.
