Our mission is to Identify, Connect, and Empower women veterans through social, professional and personal connections. We do this by utilizing electronic and live networking across communities, across the United States and internationally.
Technology and collaboration have been tools to firmly anchor and connect an otherwise invisible nation of women who have served with those who are serving and those who are preparing to serve in the military.
Women Veteran Social Justice is a support organization founded by BriGette McCoy in 2008, with the vision to identify connect, educate and empower veteran women. After BriGette’s own challenges with homelessness, military sexual trauma and navigating the VA Healthcare System she saw the value to have a community of peers connected to one another. Her alignment of Facebook, Peer support and community building concepts within a shared learning environment was an innovative strategy to shift the community to a well informed connected force.
Thanking us for our service means we all recognize our sisters in arms have earned the right to be honored and supported appropriately and to obtain information about programs, benefits and networking opportunities.
We connect with Women Veterans and military service members in several ways, including individually, in small community groups, regional retreats, national educational/vocational conferences and electronically — in recognition and celebration of their military service.
