Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans
Appointed by the Secretary, The Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans (ACMV) was established under Public Law 103-446 &sec; 510, November 2, 1994. The Committee consists of Veterans who represent respective minority groups.
The Center for Minority Veterans is part of the Office of the Secretary. The Center assists eligible Veterans in their efforts to receive benefits and services from VA. The Center acts only as a mediator and facilitator — As such the Center does not process claims, handle equal employment complaints, or employee relation problems. The Center is dedicated to ensuring that all Veterans are aware of benefits, services, and programs offered by VA.
In Celebration of Black History Month — The theme of this year is “Civil Rights in America.”
