April is Paralyzed Veterans of America Awareness Month

April marks Paralyzed Veterans of America Awareness Month and the 68th anniversary of the founding of the veterans service organization. Throughout the month of April, Paralyzed Veterans and its 34 chapters across the country will be highlighting the challenges facing veterans with spinal cord injury/dysfunction and educating the public about the programs, services and support Paralyzed Veterans provides to injured veterans and their families.

“This April, during Paralyzed Veterans Awareness Month, we’re encouraging the public to learn about the challenges paralyzed veterans face and to give back and support these veterans by volunteering, hiring a veteran if you’re a business owner or by making a donation to support our programs and services, which are provided free to veterans,” said paralyzed U.S. Army veteran Bill Lawson, national president of Paralyzed Veterans.

For the third year in a row, Lawson will be traveling around the country to raise awareness about health care, benefits and jobs for veterans. He will be stopping in New York City; Dallas; Fort Myers, FL; Washington, DC; and Chicago to speak with local veterans and community leaders about these issues.

Paralyzed Veterans chapters across the country will be holding local awareness events throughout the month of April. To locate a chapter event in your city, please visitwww.pva.org/pam.

  • Advocate for quality VA health care and veterans benefits.
  • Work to make America more accessible for all people with disabilities.
