Message to Veterans Exposed to Toxins

Dear LULAC Familia,

We have some urgent news for veterans you may know and can contact. The next 10 days are critical for them receiving some important information. We urgently need your help to get the word out today. Here’s why:

Congress recently passed the Honoring our PACT Act. This new law offers historic added benefits for veterans who were exposed to toxins. This includes chemical poisons like Agent Orange, burn pits, and more.

The VA has information sessions set across the country, December 10-17. LULAC is helping contact the 5-million vets who were affected, with your support. Please share: news.va.gov/111511/va-host-town-halls-pact-act-week-of-action/

Each of us can reach a service member who may be suffering. Please share widely on your social media, or email and call a veteran. Can we please count on you?
Thank you,

Roman Palomares
LULAC Military and Veterans Affairs Chair
