This Veterans Day our country feels extremely divided. Neighbors, friends, and even family not only feel like they are on opposite sides of the aisle, but in different realities altogether.
That’s why veterans are speaking up to remind us of our common commitment to the ideals enshrined in our Constitution—ideals that are truly worth fighting for.
Veterans for American Ideals, a project of Human Rights First, seeks to raise veterans’ voices on the causes that unite us as Americans and the principles that led them to put on the uniform in the first place. We do this without regard to partisanship or the winners or losers of elections.
Share this video on Facebook and Twitter to help us remind America that we are a nation that extends its hand to the victims of conflict and oppression. That we will never yield to Islamophobia, racism, xenophobia, or prejudice of any kind. That above all, we will reject fear and we will embrace hope.
We need your support to make our work possible. Please make a gift that is meaningful to you today that tells us and the world that you believe in an America for all of us.
United we stand.
Director, National Security Outreach
