The mission of the Veterans Organizing Institute (VOI), a program of Common Defense, is to support the leadership development of Progressive military veterans. Our vision is to develop a network of diverse former service members with a sophisticated political analysis and practical organizing skills. By providing convening spaces, advanced training, and opportunities for hands-on issue campaign work, we believe we can cultivate long-term Progressive veteran leaders who will play a crucial role in reshaping the long-term American political landscape.
