OUT IN NATIONAL SECURITY BRINGING OUR WHOLE SELVES TO THE DEFENSE OF OUR COUNTRY JOIN US

We are a community of  LGBTI activists and national security practitioners seeking to create equality of opportunity and access based on our own diverse experiences.

 

We’re talking about talented Americans who are serving with distinction or who want the opportunity to serve. We can’t allow barriers unrelated to a person’s qualifications (to) prevent us from recruiting and retaining those who can best accomplish the mission.

-Former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter

It was an honor to speak with @NPR in my personal capacity on the power of #subnational diplomacy and the launch of @TrumanCenter’s new task force report on #TransformingState https://www.npr.org/2021/03/03/972493656/state-department-should-be-more-diverse-and-engaged-across-u-s-report-says

Great speech today by @SecBlinken on US priorities: strengthening alliances, shoring up our economic foundations, investing smartly in democracy, expanding the tools of statecraft, and galvanizing collective action on climate change, among others. Smart, principled, focused. https://twitter.com/StateDept/status/1367161094511337473

.@SecBlinken: We will renew democracy, because it’s under threat.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s the value of culture and character. It’s why we’re placing so much emphasis on issues related to the health of our force, and it’s also why I released a memo to reaffirm our values and ethical conduct. https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2521753/secretary-of-defense-message-on-reaffirming-dod-values-and-ethical-conduct/
