The National Women Veterans United (NWVU) is aware of the difficult times that military women veterans, service members, and other citizens are experiencing due to COVID-19.
NWVU is appealing to military women veterans to contact us and we will go as far as we can to assist you. We have also asked partners to stand with us until grants and other financial avenues are in place, and even then that may not be enough. Those that are hit the hardest are those who were already at risk, homeless and or one paycheck away from losing everything.
We are making phone calls to those that we are aware of and our doors are open for those that need us too.

for your support of the National Women Veterans United and to Military Women Veterans!
On behalf of the National Women Veterans United (NWVU), thank you for your support. It is with a heavy heart that (NWVU) must cancel the Campaign15 Conference for Military Women Veterans, due to the COVID-19 national and state mandates. Our heavy heart is for those that are personally affected by the virus.
If you purchased an AD, the book will be available to you in the month of April, and they will also be distributed at the rescheduled Conference. The good news is that NWVU celebrates the 15-year history of making a difference, providing service and preserving our legacy in the Armed Forces. The Conference will be rescheduled and hosted in the future when the mandates have been lifted. Our enthusiasm and excitement to provide a day of honor for military women veterans will be at the same height.
Please keep our nation, troops, medical personnel, and first responders and caretakers in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you again for your support and we look forward to a brighter future for all.
