Tell Congress to Act Now

Millions of veterans were exposed to a wide range of dangerous substances, often unknowingly, during their deployments. From burn pits to radiation to chemically-laced IEDs and other toxins, these exposures have resulted in deaths and illnesses to a large and rapidly increasing number of veterans, yet the VA turns down nearly 80% of applications for disability benefits.

Week in Review

14 Stormers joined us over the course of our 2017 Storm the Hill. These incredible IAVA members went through a rigorous application process and were competitively selected to come to Washington DC to tell their stories and advocate with IAVA on behalf of the post-9/11 generation of veterans. Stormers participated in almost 38 Congressional meetings from March 20-24, 2017.

Highlights

IAVA testified before Senate and House Veterans’ Affairs Committees on March 27.

On March 21, IAVA held a press conference to announce the launch of our #SheWhoBorneTheBattle campaign and to introduce the Deborah Sampson Act.
