Arizona Humanities Launches Two New Programs for Veterans

Arizona Humanities presents two new free programs open to all veterans beginning this month. The goal of the programs is to help veterans reintegrate into the larger community while connecting with other veterans. 

Making Peace: Exploring Personal Experience Through Writing is a writing workshop designed for female veterans to learn writing techniques and share stories. At Home: Veterans Read and Share Stories is a facilitated book discussion for male veterans to read and discuss classic and contemporary literature.

Both programs are free, include all materials with a complimentary meal, and are open to veterans from all eras.

 Since 2001, over two million American men and women have been deployed in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for the first time in a generation, Americans have lived with the ongoing consequences of war. Brenda Thomson, Executive Director of Arizona Humanities remarked, “We are proud to launch these new programs for veterans. Our goal is not only to learn more about their experiences as they served our country, but also the challenges they face as they return to civilian life. We are interested in the stories they have to tell, and also the impact that their service has had on all of us, friends, family and supporters.”
