MVAA Women Veterans Conference 2022
Women veterans from across Michigan gathered in downtown Lansing for two days in June 2022 to learn about advocacy and resources, create new connections and share their testimonies. The first-ever MVAA Women Veterans Conference successfully brought together nearly 150 women veterans from all walks of life with a goal of raising awareness of their contributions and sacrifices and improving women veteran services. The historic conference reinforced the MVAA’s goal of serving all veterans, including underserved and underrepresented veteran populations. It also highlighted the MVAA’s highly successful She is A Veteran (SIAV) campaign, through which six women veterans tell their powerful stories of life during and after military service.

She Is a Veteran
She is a Veteran is a women veteran's outreach campaign designed to:
- Connect women to their identity as veterans
- Change the public perception of what veterans look like
- Connect women veterans to benefits
- Connect women veterans to community
The campaign consists of 6 women veterans who represent the diverse backgrounds of Michigan veterans. These women share their stories hoping that their personal journeys will resonate with all individuals and can encourage military women to speak up and proudly identify with their veteran status.
We encourage you to share these stories.
