During these uncertain times, how can we help?

SWAN’s mission is to transform military culture by securing equal opportunity and freedom to serve without discrimination, harassment or assault; and to reform veterans’ services to ensure high quality health care and benefits for women veterans and their families.
SWAN is a nonpartisan civil rights organization. We challenge institutions and cultural norms that deny equal opportunities, equal protections, and equal benefits to servicemembers and veterans.
Similarly, the inclusive approach we take is pivotal to healing the various forms of discrimination and violence faced by women and other marginalized populations in the military, including sexism, racism, and homophobia.
SWAN assists service members and veterans without regard to sex, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.
The content of SWAN’s work is directly informed by the experiences of the populations that we serve.
Whenever possible, women veterans design, supervise and lead SWAN’s programs, in order to foster a sense of belonging, ownership, and community and to build personal skills that increase leadership experience, self-sufficiency, healing and well-being.
SWAN extends opportunities to and promotes the voices and agency of servicewomen and women veterans, regardless of the context, era, or type of their service.
