Please join the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce as we discuss key findings from the latest COVID-19 Climate Snapshot Poll from Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) and Military Times. We’ll highlight what research has found are the top resources needed to most effectively support our military community in the wake of COVID-19, and recommended targeted next steps for community stakeholders. Also, because Hispanic veteran-owned businesses have grown 56%, and the self-employment rate for active-duty military spouses has doubled in recent years, we will discuss military-connected entrepreneurship and how to participate in IVMF research and programming.
