WASHINGTON–Verified identity platform Merit will host an afternoon press event at The National Press Club in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, October 19, 2022.

The event takes place at 3pm ET. An online broadcast of the event is free and open to all. Media are additionally invited to attend in person after registering in advance.
Please join a coalition of veteran and military spouse organizations, as well as current and former state elected officials and appointees, who recognize the critical role military personnel and their families play in the fabric of America.
