Military vets fight a new war: Political misinformation
After 20 years in the military organizing troops, Gloria Hamilton is now using her military training to get more involved in causes in her community – including the upcoming election.
The retired Army veteran was one of 10 vets from around the Southeast who recently participated in a one-of-a-kind, five-day training retreat in Atlanta organized by the Veterans Organizing Institute, the training arm of Common Defense, a 501(c)4 grassroots group of progressive veterans.
This year’s midterm is an “important election,” VOI training director Janice Jamison told Atlanta Civic Circle. “There’s so much misinformation that’s happening right now.”
