President Trump says he cares about veterans, but what do veterans care about? Not satisfied to be political props, many veterans are raising their voices to drive change, positioning themselves as a civilizing voice in contentious political times. But they also face unique challenges to organizing. The panel draws on the experience of veterans campaigning for refugees and against Islamophobia to face tough questions for traditional and digital community organizing & advocacy in the Trump era.
