The Minority Affairs Committee has twelve Convention Resolutions it actively supports. These resolutions recognize the contributions of Vietnam veterans who are ethnic minorities from all areas of the world. The committee appreciates their decision to participate in VVA and their contributions in the name of veterans in their communities and support for veterans of all eras.
The committee’s primary goal is to recruit more members for VVA through its participation in conferences and other activities with its membership and health benefit information booths nationwide. It will focus this coming year on participating in activities of its most underrepresented Vietnam veterans: Native Americans. The committee asks all VVA members to help recruit Native American veterans. It begins with participation in their powwows, meetings, and conferences and follows with invitations to participate in local chapter meetings and activities.
