For over 100 years, DAV has been advocating for better federal veterans programs, benefits, health care and transition services for the men and women who served, their families and survivors. DAV’s National Legislative Department takes the resolutions adopted by DAV members at our annual National Conventions to Congress to advocate for improved federal laws, regulations and policies of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other federal agencies whose programs support the veteran population.

DAV’s key legislative priorities are detailed in the Critical Policy Goals brief linked below on this page. Please review these goals, participate in the Commander’s Action Network, and visit our Resources Page to ensure you are an effective advocate when meeting with your members of Congress and addressing these priorities and other important issues impacting veterans. Grassroots advocacy and your active participation is the key to our collective strength in Washington, D.C., and achieving more legislative victories for veterans in the year ahead.
