Mark Petersen, is the founder of the People's Patriot Project. The organization has been a lifeline for many, especially during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic. They've ingeniously adapted to the new normal by hosting virtual happy hours, providing a platform for musicians and comedians within their network, and ensuring that the camaraderie and community spirit remain strong despite physical distancing. One of the key takeaways from our conversation was the importance of recognizing the diverse needs of veterans and first responders. While PTSD is a significant issue, it's not the only challenge Veterans face. The People's Patriot Project is dedicated to combating the silent, deadly, and invisible enemies that our daily heroes encounter, offering support that goes beyond the conventional. Mark stressed the importance of creating networks that offer direct support rather than just referrals. The goal is to build relationships with individuals in need, providing personalized and holistic support. Looking ahead, Mark shared his vision for the future of advocacy. He emphasized the need for organizations to be actively involved and authentic in their efforts. As the veteran and first responder community evolves, so must the strategies and initiatives designed to support them. An exciting upcoming event we discussed is the "Parade of Heroes," which aims to showcase the talent and experiences of veterans and first responders in a unique and impactful way. This event is a testament to the People's Patriot Project's commitment to honoring our heroes in innovative and meaningful ways. Mark shared a powerful message about how anyone can contribute to their mission. Whether it's through time, talent, or treasure, there are numerous ways to get involved. From social media management to event planning, the People's Patriot Project welcomes all forms of support. Go to to learn more!
