A Salute To Veterans In Need Of Restorative Justice

  • This event has passed.

The Veterans Defense Project, along with the University of St. Thomas School of Law, cordially invite you to join us for this special event in Minneapolis or online.

The Veterans Defense Project (VDP) is a non-profit that advocates for veterans, like Tony Miller (watch his story), who need support to navigate the legal system, heal from trauma, and reintegrate back into our communities.

We hope that you’ll join us on November 9th as we acknowledge the many challenges veterans face, and honor their sacrifice by our advocacy and action.
