Become a Discussion Participant

We are currently seeking discussion participants for a new program The Art of Reintegration: Veterans and the Silences of War. The discussions will be a safe and welcoming space for everyone to examine multiple points of view where everyone is respected.
Please consider applying if you:
  • Are a veteran/service member or have a veteran in your family
  • Want to speak openly and share your unique perspectives and experiences
  • Want to help build a healthier veteran community
Applicants must commit to 5 of the 7 monthly discussions in order to be considered. Discussions will take place monthly at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (mostly on Wednesdays and/or other weekdays in the evening).
To apply, please send a brief paragraph to indicating the following by August 12:

1.     Why you are interested in these discussions
2.     Your military experience and/or experience as a family member of a service member, or interacting with veterans/service members
3.     What you bring to the table
4.     What you hope to get out of the experience

We will provide refreshments as well as a small stipend to cover transportation/childcare. The first session will take place in September 2018 (date TBD).
