Stand up and reserve your seat for the Women Veterans Social Justice Annual Women Veterans Reunion and Empowerment Conference March 27-28 at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to be empowered and reunited with women veterans from across the country.

Linda Spoonster-Schwartz, Ph.D., the Veterans administration assistant secretary for Policy and Planning is the keynote speaker.

Maj. General Maria Britt, the Kennesaw State University Associate Vice President of Operations, and the first female to head the Georgia National Guard, will emcee the event titled, "Coming Home, Stepping Up, And Connecting."

The live broadcast will be online video streamed, for the first eNetworked women veteran's national nonprofit.

"Women veterans are the fastest growing homeless demographic in the nation, and struggle to self identify for the honorable service they rendered as members of our armed forces," CEO and founder of WVSJ, Brigette McCoy said. "New technology is the answer to connecting 2.2 million women veterans, and we're honored that General Britt and Doctor Schwartz have chosen to support us in this quest.

"Participation from such accomplished women is key to helping America understand the value of women's contribution to our national defense," she said. "We are eager to reach the 100,000 women veterans in Georgia, and women throughout the nation with our rapidly developing platform."

The nonprofit helps women veterans gain resources to help with transition across life spans, build economic empowerment, network for social justice, and step up as leaders post military service.

The conference features two days of presentations, workshops, exhibits, and special events, such as a panel discussion after showing the nationally televised, and NY Emmy Award winning documentary, Service: When Women Come Marching Home.

McCoy was featured in the 2011 documentary, with several women who either served in combat or on active duty.
