November 1 Now a Statewide Recognition of Veterans in the Arts and Humanities Day

It’s all kinds of official; November 1st, 2019, is officially Veterans in the Arts and Humanities Day in the State of California. This is permanent, annual recognition and represents 11 years of work, starting from when we first conceived the concept as a way to honor veterans both past and present engaged in the arts, humanities and the entertainment industry.

On behalf of everyone at USVAA we wish to thank Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager-Dove, the California State Assembly and Senate, California Governor Gavin Newsom and the following individuals and governments for making this day a reality.

California State Senator Holly Mitchell

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

Los Angeles City Councilmember Mike Bonin

Hon. Bill Rosendahl, Los Angeles City Council (deceased)

Last, but not least, we want to thank our esteemed colleagues working in all artistic disciplines and the humanities for their consistent efforts to honor their fellow veterans while simultaneously helping to build an organization that maintains the collaborative spirit necessary to bring diverse ideas and high quality art to the public.
