On March 15, 2018, during the country's national recognition of Women's History Month, Women Veterans ROCK! and The Women Veterans 2020 Delegation(c) will host 100 of the region’s leading Military Women for their 2018 Women Veterans Public Policy Day On Capitol Hill.
We Are Excited To Announce – “New People, New Policies & New Partners!” – is the theme of our 2018 pilgrimage to Capitol Hill.
Public Policy Day provides The Women Veterans 2020 Delegation(c) with important opportunities to visit with Congressional Members, Senate Leaders, and Hill Staffers. Delegates learn about: Congress; the public policy-making process; and they'll have an opportunity to share their experiences, challenges, and victories with The Delegation and Legislative Leaders. Each year, we remain committed to bringing attention to important issues affecting Women Veterans and Military Families.
This year, we will host a special forum for Veteran Service Organizations. The "2018 Women Veterans Caucus Session" is dedicated to shining the spotlight on Veteran Service Organizations and the most crucial aspects of the services they provide. The overall goal of The Women Veterans 2020 Delegation is “Building Positive and Productive Partnerships” with our new Partners on The Hill.
Our mission is to maintain sustainability in our role as Advocates for Today’s Military Women & Military Familiesembedded within the ever-changing landscape of today’s Military Community-At-Large.
