About the Veterans for Human Rights

Veterans for Human Rights (VfHR) was incorporated in 1993 as a public benefit corporation, organized and operating under the laws of the State of Oregon. VfHR is an exempt organization under § 501(c)19—war veterans organization. All contributions are tax deductable to the full extent of the law.

Membership is open to all active, reserve and veteran members of the U.S. Military who support our goals. Membership does not imply sexual orientation. All Membership records are confidential and are available to VfHR officials only. Member and mailing lists are not sold or loaned.

VfHR works closely with other local and national organizations in securing the full and equal civil rights for all Americans. VfHR provides legal resources and referrals for service-members, advocates on behalf of veterans with HIV/AIDS, defends the unique issues and needs of women and transgender veterans, assists with discharge upgrades and works closely with veterans on other issues.

Veterans for Human Rights promotes the full recognition and equal protection of active reserve and veteran members of the U.S. Armed Forces. VfHR advocates for gays, lesbians and bisexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military. VfHR opposes all forms of discrimination and promotes patriotism.
