Justice-involved veterans can be healed, and veterans can help to heal the justice-involved. That’s the animating principle of Veterans Advocacy Alliance.
There are nearly 107,000 incarcerated veterans in the United States. They are a particularly vulnerable population, with unique and pressing needs around job training, education, substance abuse, and PTSD.
When engaged as advocates for reform, veterans can also speak with unparalleled credibility on issues such as the effects of trauma, how trauma is a root cause of crime, and how to foster rehabilitation among the trauma-impacted persons.
Putting those two pieces together is the goal and vision of Veterans Advocacy Alliance.
