Democratic Leaders Invite Veterans from Minority Groups to Policy Discussions

Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly promised to include more veterans from minority communities in policy discussions. Last week, they delivered on this promise.

According to an article published by Military Times, “[During] a joint hearing by the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs committees, leaders from Minority Veterans of America and the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans sat for the first time among organizations invited each year to give their views on current Veterans Affairs policies and shortfalls.”

Democratic leaders have also invited the National Congress of American Indians and National Association for Black Veterans to legislative presentation panels later this month.
