Oregon Public Safety Academy hosts "I Am Not Invisible" display recognizing veterans (Photo) - 04/16/19

In cooperation with the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is honored to recognize our women veterans across the State by featuring the “I Am Not Invisible” exhibit at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.  While there are over 28,000 women veterans throughout the State, there are still barriers in the services and recognition that their male counterparts often receive.  The “I Am Not Invisible” exhibit spotlights the many faces of this diverse and important segment of the Oregon veteran community while increasing awareness and dialogue about women veterans. 

A walk through the exhibit will open your eyes to the myriad of contributions, needs and experiences of women who have served in the military.  We invite you to take the time to visit the 20 portraits of Oregon women military veterans and read about their contributions. The exhibit will be on display in our main lobby through April 22nd.

DPSST's Director Eriks Gabliks said "we know that thousands of our state's city, county, state, and tribal public safety professionals have worn the uniform of our nation's armed services and are now continuing to serve by wearing the uniform of a law enforcement officer, firefighter, private security professional, or perhaps a non-certified position who collectively are helping to ensure our communities and residents are safe.  We are honored to host this display at the Academy to showcase the service of Oregon women who have served."
