Justice for Veterans and DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson will present a town hall meeting, “Veterans Night Out,” on Monday, July 30, at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts and Community Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive, Decatur.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.  and  the meeting will start promptly at 7 p.m.

Retired Lt. Colonel Amos King, Jr. , M. Ed,  who heads Justice for Veterans will lead a discussion on mental health and police brutality.

“Too many veterans continue to be killed as a result of police brutality, even though police know the person has a history of mental illness,” King said. “We must continue working together to ensure the safety of veterans and to make sure they have the resources and medical attention needed.”

 Representatives from various agencies will be at the event including DeKalb County Tax Commissioner Irwin Johnson, who will be discussing tax benefits for veterans, Georgia’s National Cemetery for Veterans and housing officials.  

Veterans and their family members, as well as other community stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
