VETERANS FOR PEACE INC - National Office
August 1, 2014

Veterans For Peace held an incredibly successful 29th annual convention July 23 - 27 in Asheville, NC. For the 2nd consecutive year (also Madison in August 2013), VFP was welcomed by our host city's mayor. The convention lasted 5 days, drawing nearly 400 participants. One highlight was an Iraq and Afghanistan veterans caucus, drawing over 3 dozen young veterans. Our keynote speaker, Cynthia McKinney, was preceded by keynoter Alice Walker at our 2012 convention in Miami, which itself was followed by a fact-finding tour to Haiti with Alice, Colonel Ann Wright (ret.) and 16 other participants.

Veterans For Peace is unique in its demographic, institutional viability, and enthusiasm for activism shown consistently in over 100 communities. Veterans For Peace is one of the most reliable groups on the American scene in the fight for peace and equality.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue our efforts at institutionalizing our funding streams (bequests, recurring credit-car donations, etc.). Solidify efforts to pass the torch to a younger generation of veterans/peace activists, with special attention given to women vets and vets of color.
