Join us on May 8th for a discussion of military spouse voting – past, present, and future. We’ll celebrate 100 years of votes for women, discuss current voting status and how to amplify your vote, and explore the future of voting and election security. Don’t miss the chance to hear from military spouses working on these issues, including Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Secure Families Initiative Director Sarah Streyder.

Homefront Rising is a non-partisan initiative that encourages and trains military spouses to speak up and get involved in the political process through advocacy and public service.
At the heart of the mission is the desire to empower members of the military community to make positive change for military families. We have become adept at calling on Congress and our elected officials to demand that they meet the needs of those who serve. But we also need members of our own community among the elected officials making decisions that affect it. It is time for the homefront to rise! It will no longer just be “call your representative” – military spouses will be the representatives! Homefront Rising wants to help empower military spouses to take the skills learned from supporting the homefront to Capitol Hill, city hall, and state houses across this country.
Past events include full-day seminars in Washington, D.C. and Tampa, FL, and panels in San Diego and Seattle.
