Unidos: Inclusivity for a stronger nation

Through our featured speakers, presenters, and moderators we aim to educate, encourage, and engage the Veteran population in support of understanding the Honoring our PACT ACT and celebrate the successes of Hispanic-Latino Veterans.

During this Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep 15-Oct 15), The Center for Minority Veterans (CMV) is conducting a minority Veteran outreach, engagement, education and enrollment effort. It is important to honor the dedication and commitment of our Hispanic/Latino servicemembers and Veterans. We aim to inform Veterans of their benefits and services by hosting weekly virtual webinars with the Secretary of VA, Senior Leaders and Veterans to discuss the importance of the PACT ACT and celebrate the achievements of the Hispanic-Latino community.

If you require accommodations please reach out to Carmen Drummond, vacocmv@va.gov

The signing of the bipartisan Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act (VA PACT ACT Page) marks one of the most important expansions of VA healthcare in decades. This is important for our Latino/HispanicVeterans whose participation in the armed forces, including combat regions impacted by toxic exposure is well documented and recognized.
