Veterans Programs

Debt of Honor Film by Ric Burns

Debt of Honor Film by Ric Burns

Veterans programs directly support veteran communities through book discussions, writing workshops, film discussions, photography projects and more. Arizona Humanities partners with veterans groups to explore the humanities with veterans, and we are dedicated to building programming with the goal of allowing veterans to engage in discussion, learning, and reflection.

 It was valuable to hear the stories of other veterans and the program made me feel valued as a veteran myself. -Veterans Writing Workshop Participant 


Powder writing by women veterans helen benedictSince 2001, over two million American men and women have been deployed in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for the first time in a generation Americans have lived with the ongoing consequences of war. Arizona Humanities works to bring together communities of veterans and their families for thoughtful reflection and meaningful discussion.

 Rabbi Bonnie Koppell, Command Chaplain of the 807th Medical Command (Deployment Support), Associate Rabbi at Temple Chai, and Veterans Book Group Facilitator remarked, “Humanities programs create a forum in which to build relationships and provide an environment to share and process experiences in a supportive environment.”
