As an actor-activist, Melissa Fitzgerald is best known for her seven-year role as Carol on the NBC smash hit The West Wing, but off-screen she is widely recognized as a courageous advocate for people in need. Melissa is the co-founder of Voices in Harmony, a non-profit mentoring organization that uses theater to work with underserved teens. In 2007, Melissa traveled to war-torn Northern Uganda to bring the Voices in Harmony program to former abducted child soldiers and other teenagers affected by the region’s brutal rebel war.
Melissa Fitzgerald is also the Senior Director for Justice For Vets. Justice for Vets is the only veterans organization exclusively committed to ensuring that veterans arrested with a substance abuse and/ or mental health issue have access to treatment and services in a Veterans Treatment Court.
Justice For Vets recognizes that some veterans struggle to cope when they come home and that restoring them to the healthy citizens they once were not only honors their sacrifice but makes our communities stronger. 1 in 5 veterans has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or depression and 1 in 6 veterans suffer from a substance abuse disorder. Tragically, these invisible wounds lead too many returning service members into contact with the criminal justice system. Justice For Vets leads the national effort to establish Veterans Treatment Courts within reach of all veterans to ensure they receive the help they need to return to their families and communities as parents, spouses, neighbors and colleagues—benefiting all of us. Veterans Treatment Courts are nationally recognized as the most innovative and effective solution to this growing problem, saving lives, families, and futures, while saving tax dollars for the American public.
