Veterans Empowerment Forum, Feb 2nd @ CSI

The purpose of this forum is to discuss the issues facing the veteran community today and to highlight a number of recent governmental initiatives, programs and legislation that have been implemented to help tackle these problems.

The CSI Student Veteran Center is hosting a “Veterans Empowerment Forum” in collaboration with Organizing for America and Staten Island 4 Change. The guest speaker will be Robert Diamond, Vice Chair, Veterans & Military Families Council, DNC. The purpose of this forum is to discuss the issues facing the Veteran community today and to highlight a number of the recent governmental initiatives, programs, and legislation that have been implemented to help tackle these issues.
The forum is educational in nature and is meant to broaden the public’s understanding of these unique issues. With less than one percent of the U.S. population currently serving in the military at a time of ten years of sustained combat overseas, the general public can be ill-informed on the issues facing this important community.
