Sacramento Valley Veterans (SVV) was initially founded in 2004 by Ray Allen, a U.S. Marine veteran. SVV was and is the only lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) servicemember and veteran group in the Sacramento, California area. In 2010, SVV reactivated to give a voice and a face to the LGBT servicemember and veteran community in Sacramento.
Sacramento Valley Veterans (SVV) is a chapter of the American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER), Inc. AVER is a non-profit, chapter-based association of active, reserve and veteran servicemembers dedicated to full and equal rights and equitable treatment for all present and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces
Sacramento Valley Veterans (SVV) is looking to address the needs of the LGBT servicemember and veteran community by offering events for camaraderie and holding monthly meetings to discuss how we can ensure our men and women are taken care of. In these, the beginning stages, SVV is looking to find out what we can do to ensure you, fellow brethren and sistren, have not only a great time but also a resource you can use.
We look forward to seeing you at future events and meetings.
