Celebrate with MVA the 8th anniversary of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Sept. 20th, 2019 marks the 8th 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.

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 two years and we’re all so excited for our future as an organization.

As we celebrate the anniversary of the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, we do not forget that there is currently a ban on open transgender military service. We join in solidarity both with and as LGBT service members and veterans. #FightTheBan

On this anniversary of repeal, join us for FREE at West Seattle Bowl to socialize and share in stories of solidarity and resilience! We have ten (10) lanes available for teams of five (5) or individual bowlers.

If interested in volunteering, please email us at contact@minorityvets.org.
