Join the Veterans Multi-Service Center and The Philadelphia Citizen for a conversation about how to capture the civic spirit of veterans to make a better Philadelphia for all.

Too often, veterans lose their mission and sense of purpose when they take off the uniform. But their commitment to serving their country is exactly what we need to move this city forward.

This event will feature a panel discussion that explores several different avenues of civic engagement, with the goal of connecting veterans to resources and avenues to get involved in their community.

The event is free!

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
