About the Democratic Socialists of America Veterans Working Group
The DSA Veterans Working Group seeks to provide a conduit for veterans to connect with their communities and with each other to fight for our shared goals: racial, economic, social, environmental, gender, religious and disability rights justice. Our mission continues as organizers and comrades helping to enact democratic socialism.
Veterans have seen the inner workings of the beast that is our capitalist, war driven society, creating profit for the 1% at the expense of the many - who are often from working class backgrounds themselves, seeking opportunities to improve their status through military service. On a more positive note, veterans also understand the value of working as a group towards a common goal or mission.
About The Veterans Organizing Institute
The Veterans Organizing Institute is a veteran led program to develop the leadership and organizing skills of veterans who are working for progressive social change.
Beyond the Choir launched the Veterans Organizing Institute (VOI) in January 2016. In the Institute’s inaugural year they trained 63 veterans in organizing and campaigning skills, holding training in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. The program is run by veterans Jose Vasquez, Perry O’Brien, and Pam Campos-Palma with support from the rest of the BTC team.
