Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Veterans from all generations are processing the news of what is currently unfolding in Afghanistan and could be experiencing a wide range of emotions and feelings right now. From union presidents to first-year apprentices, many of these veterans are our brothers, sisters and friends in the labor movement, and we want to support them during this concerning time. The Union Veterans Council has shared a list of resources for military veterans. The council is also encouraging union members who are veterans to check in with each other.
