Vet Out the Vote Campaign Volunteer
Please visit the new page to apply.
Minority veterans have a long history of being the keepers of the right to vote. Today, as we watch the most restrictive voter registration laws actively implemented across the country, it is time for minority veterans and our supporting community to rise again to fight to protect the right to vote and ensure our communities have a voice.
Vet the Vote, leverages our base of minority veterans and supporters, our local chapter networks, and our Emerging Leaders to deploy materials and coordinate actions in the fight for voting rights locally and nationally.
Volunteers will support organizing efforts, distribute materials to organizers around the country, and mobilize MVA communities in the fight for voting rights.
About MINORITY VETERANS OF AMERICA
PO Box 23054, SEATTLE, WA 98102, US
Minority Veterans of America (MVA) is a 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to create belonging and advance equity for underrepresented veterans. MVA will receive grants for four key purposes: The primary underrepresented groups that MVA serves are: veterans of color, womxn, LGBTQ, and religious and non-religious minorities. We believe that through bringing these four minority groups together, we can build a veteran community that encompasses veterans from a wide range of diverse backgrounds and experiences. By bringing together these specific communities of underrepresented veterans, we are able to hear the voices and stories and better understand the needs of those that we wish to serve. In properly advocating for the needs of our constituents, we have the opportunity to change the landscape of services for those who feel as though they have been forgotten in the veteran community.
MVA was founded in November of 2017 by two University of Washington Husky veterans, Lindsay Church and Katherine Pratt. Church and Pratt first began their work in 2014 through the Husky United Military Veterans where they built a Diversity Committee that celebrated the underrepresented groups within the student veteran community at the University of Washington.
Since 2014, Church and Pratt have collaborated to lead the student veteran population at the UW, Church through her role in the Student Veteran Life office, and Pratt as the President of the student veteran organization, Husky Veterans. Today, they partner to build and grow MVA in order to celebrate the identities that they both feel that they hold that make them underrepresented in the veteran community.
