Campaign Will Focus on Foreign Policy, VA Health Care Reform, Federal Spending
ARLINGTON, Va.—On Thursday, September 12, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) launched “Honor Their Sacrifice”, a two-month awareness and advocacy campaign focusing CVA’s grassroots, digital, media, and government affairs capabilities toward advancing the organization’s three priority issue areas of foreign policy, veterans’ healthcare, and federal spending.
The two month campaign will run from September 12th to November 11th (Veterans Day) and will spend up to $500,000 on targeted outreach. Each of the three priority issue areas will be featured, including digital, video, and mail components encouraging Americans to contact their elected officials about these critical issues.
CVA Executive Director, Nate Anderson, had this to say about the effort:
“Now more than ever, it is imperative that we stand up for policies that will ensure American security and prosperity. Action must be taken by principled, courageous leaders to address our national debt, promote a better foreign policy, and improve access to health care through the VA. Our veterans fought for the freedom of all Americans, and we owe it to them to pursue policies that will preserve that freedom for generations to come.”
In addition to empowering CVA’s grassroots army, the “Honor Their Sacrifice” campaign serves to publicly encourage lawmakers to support policies that honor the sacrifices of our nation’s veterans and ensure the country they fought for will remain prosperous and secure well into the future. The campaign will urge lawmakers to support an end to the war in Afghanistan, reduced U.S. government spending to lower our national debt, and full health care choice for veterans using the VA’s health care system.
“We applaud those members who have already worked to elevate these issues, and stand ready to continue to support those who stand with us in honoring the sacrifices of our nation’s veterans.”
