WE MUST HONOR AND TAKE CARE OF OUR VETERANS
WHO HAVE SERVED AND SACRIFICED FOR US
“Our veterans and their families have sacrificed and served our country. The least we can do is make sure that they can access high quality healthcare without long wait times, have pathways to high-wage jobs, and make sure they have a place to live when they come home. Right now, our leaders have failed at serving those who served--and we must do better.” - Ethan
Provide pathways for high-wage jobs by leveraging the skills and training they learned in the service to fast-track veterans at obtaining certifications, remove barriers for veterans looking to start a business, and encouraging Michigan’s employers--and requiring state agencies and contractors--to be veteran friendly employers.
Improve Veterans healthcare by working with the VA to increase staffing levels at Veterans facilities to reduce wait times, oppose privatization of services which has led to neglect and abuse of veterans in Michigan’s hospitals, and expanding access for veterans to obtain treatment for addiction, counseling, and mental health care.
End Veteran Homelessness by working collaboratively with the federal government on ways to ensure housing initiatives are tailored to the needs facing Michigan’s homeless veterans.
