Military ToxicExposure Coalition

Join the Military Toxic Exposure Coalition - Amplifying Veterans Voices in Washington!

Thank you for all that you have done to bring us to this historic moment for veterans and service members. To harness the growing force for change, we invite you to join us in a groundbreaking new effort – The Military Toxic Exposure Coalition (MTEC).

Veterans and service members are sick and dying. According to the Burn Pits 360 registry we know there are veterans struggling with illnesses that live in every state and congressional district nationwide. Far too often they are left facing a system of delay and deny. It’s time for Congress to act.

The Military Toxic Exposure Coalition will allow us to leverage the transformative energy and momentum that we already possess as veteran advocates and allow us to work together as a united front. The coalition is comprised of Veterans, veteran leaders, first responder unions, non-profits, and influencers who have dedicated their time/efforts to support veterans.

What is the Military Toxic Exposure Coalition?

The MTEC is an education and direct-action effort that began with the first Military Toxic Exposure Conference held on August 28th in conjunction with Jon Stewart, John Feal, Grunt Style and Burn Pits 360. Our next event is the GET LOUD FOR TOXIC WOUNDS OF WAR Veterans Day RALLY ON 11/11/20 IN WASHINGTON D.C. This event will serve as an opportunity of hope. To highlight The Way Ahead, and to inform and activate support for Congress to Act.

The Presumptive Benefits for War Fighters Exposed to Toxins Act of 2020 bill will provide full presumptive coverage for everyone who served in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia, and were exposed to Toxins.
