Veterans

Serving our values again

Who We Work With

Veterans for American Ideals is a coalition of veterans and allies who continue their service to America by upholding, defending, and advocating for human rights at home and abroad. If you are a veteran interested in advocating for human rights, whether on a federal level or in your local community, join us.

The Help We Need

Veterans from all states, backgrounds, and branches can join us in uplifting human rights. Whether you advocate for local refugees in your community, push back against extremism in our society, or oppose police militarization against peaceful protestors, you are welcome to join our community of advocates.

Typical Involvement

Our veterans fight for human rights, locally and nationally. Whether meeting with Member of Congress, writing op-eds, hosting community events, working at the polls, or volunteering in other capacities, there are many ways to get involved.
