This two-day conference brought local, regional, and national scholars, clinical practitioners, writers, and artists to address the psychological, spiritual, and artistic dimensions of Moral Injury among veterans. Moral Injury is the damage done to one’s conscience or moral compass when one perpetrates, witnesses, or fails to prevent acts that transgress one’s own moral and ethical values/codes of conduct/understanding.

In addition to specific panels, the conference included an art exhibit by veterans at 914 Works on 914 E. Genesee Street and a literary reading by members of the Syracuse Veterans’ Writing Group as well as other guest writers.
