    Giving a Voice to Hope: Assistance for Female Veterans
    Representatives from the Women's Bureau connected with organizations in Denver, Lansing, Mich., and Seattle this week to focus on the challenges faced by women veterans. Manuelita Ybarra, program analyst with the bureau's Seattle office, discussed the bureau's trauma care guide and careers in "green" industries at a Veterans Day observance sponsored by the King County Diversity, Equity and Social Justice Committee. Chicago's Acting Regional Administrator Grace Protos reinforced the message of serving women veterans at a Stand Down hosted by Volunteers of America in Lansing. The bureau's staff in Denver volunteered at the Homeless Veterans Stand Down, where they handed out trauma care guides to service providers and supplies to women veterans.
