The National Military Spouse Network Sets May 6 for Annual 'NMSN National Day of Advocacy'

Members to Contact Legislators and Address Issues and Solutions Vital To Military Spouses

LORTON, Va., May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Military Spouse Network (NMSN), the premiere organization supporting the professional growth and development of the nation's military spouses, has set May 6, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, for its annual "NMSN National Day of Advocacy (#NMSNAdvocacy)" initiative to raise awareness among legislators about important issues affecting the nation's military spouses. This is a hybrid event, where NMSN members can meet both on-site on Capitol Hill, in local legislative offices, and virtually with their congressional representatives and staff.

WHY: Military spouses face limited professional work opportunities due to frequent moves, relocation to remote locations where work opportunities are scarce and don't meet their professional needs, as well as a range of federal restrictions on their employment options.

WHO: Military spouses, employers, advocates, and allies working in the military spouse employment space

WHEN: Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Friday, May 6, 2022. While registration is now closed, military spouse advocates around the country should contact their legislators on this day to thank them for their support and encourage they renew their commitment to the military community.

MORE: FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) included a recommendation for a study on military spouse employment resulting from the input and expertise of NMSN. Section 567 in the NDAA authorized the study and culminated NMSN's years-long effort to effect positive change for career-minded and entrepreneurial military spouses whose unemployment rate remains far above the U.S. rate.
