Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio



Beatty's Pledge to Veterans

We have an obligation to our country’s servicemembers and veterans. These brave Americans and their families make enormous sacrifices for our country every day. That is why I remain strongly committed to our current and former members of the Armed Forces and to making sure we keep our promises to them when they return from service.

Highlights of Beatty Work for Veterans

  • Author of the Homeless Veterans Legal Services to allow the Department of Veterans Affairs to partner with nonprofits to provide legal services to homeless veterans.
  • Spearheaded designation of the National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus.
