Los Angeles, California - The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) is co-hosting a California Black Veterans Summit in an effort to develop lines of communications between the Black veterans’ community, black military history organizations, CalVet and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Black and other minority veterans have historically not applied for and used their veterans’ benefits.
This summit will feature discussions on Housing, Employment, Healthcare, and Education benefits and services that will help develop multiple avenues of communications that will enable better access to services and facilitate greater access to earned benefits for all California veterans. Participation in the California Black Veterans Summit is free!
