Continue To Serve is a veteran-based, non-profit organization focused on mobilizing veterans in the activism and community service spaces. We remember the oath we took when we joined the military and continue to serve by supporting and defending the Constitution and standing with any citizen of this country that is being marginalized or oppressed.
Continue to Serve was founded in Washington, DC on June 2nd, 2020, after the egregious clearing of Lafayette Square. In direct response to this misuse of power, a group of veterans took to the streets to stand with BLM protestors and allies, doing whatever we could to support and amplify their message. As the BLM protests grew during the ensuing months, our movement spread to veteran communities across the country and abroad. We realized that as veterans, we were in a unique position to help put a spotlight on the police abuse and systemic racism that has plagued communities of color for generations and amplify the message of BLM and similar organizations.
Continue To Serve has proudly served with amazing, DC-Based, grassroots BLM organizations. We have also worked with other organizations on numerous issues, such as saving the USPS, ensuring women's right to choose, and fighting the rapid nomination of the most recent SCOTUS judge. During the elections, we partnered with Election Defenders to help ensure a free and fair election, providing volunteers in DC, Maryland, and even Georgia.
On veteran issues, we have partnered with organizations such as Common Defense, About Face Veterans, and Vets for Peace, to help ensure veterans stay active in the direct action space. We stand together to hold our politicians accountable for their actions and the actions of their constituents, and to ensure we continue to build a network for progressive veterans to unite and continue to serve our country.
