Sept. 20th, 2018 marks the 7th anniversary of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Since this day marks the day of liberation for our LGB service members, we call Sept. 20th#PhoenixDayMVA. On this anniversary of repeal, join the Seattle as we celebrate Minority Veterans of America Day across the city.

This Sept. 20th, the anniversary of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, will be proclaimed Minority Veterans of America Day in the City of Seattle!

This is the day that our LGB service members and veterans rose from the ashes to finally be able to serve openly and authentically. We are proud of all of the work that MVA has done over the course of just a year and we’re all so excited for our future as an organization.
