Over the past several weeks, I've been speaking with the non-partisan, 501(c)(3) human rights organization Veterans for American Ideals, a group of vets working together to advocate for policy changes and actions to make America a better place. They're rallying vets in support of causes like refugee protection and U.S. leadership against enabling mass atrocities in Syria. It's an organization and mission that only grows more vital in the world's current political climate.
As November ended, I had the honor of joining about 30 veteran leaders at VFAI's Leader Convening in Washington, D.C. There, I spent two days lending my efforts to help develop their initiatives to combat Islamophobia and push for an expansion of the SIV program.
