What are we doing.
From June 12-14th, Project Echelon will conduct rides and runs across America and on virtual platforms to raise awareness for the growth and needed support of organizations that support black veterans. To continue our mission of educating, equipping, and empowering veterans and their communities, Project Echelon will raise funds for the National Association of Black Veterans (NABVETS). NABVETS is a 501c3 non-profit that provides strategic advocacy with Congress, the Federal Administration, State Administrations and other agencies and organizations on behalf of all veterans; and particularly African American veterans, homeless, incarcerated or of limited means. NABVETS, with over 50 chapters across the nation and five State Commands works in ‘Unity with the Community’ to end homelessness, empower low-income and minority veterans and advocate for disadvantaged youth in all matters related to their successful passage into adulthood.
