These new additions bring tremendous insight & diverse perspectives in achieving this responsibility. Hale Allegretti is a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Coast Guard having served 15 years on Active Duty stating, “As someone who served in silence as a lesbian under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell & then transitioned after the repeal of the transgender service protection, I understand the challenges our military members, veterans & their families are facing in these trying times. I am excited to join this accomplished group & bring my experience to this fight for full equality & fairness that LGBTQ service members & their families deserve.” Dr. Kimberly Young-McLear is a Black, queer, scholar, activist, engineer & educator who became an anti-bullying & anti-harassment policy expert who uses evidence-based research to promote justice & equity stating, “We can no longer be on the sidelines. Our future is brightest when we all participate in fighting for a just society.” Daniel Suarez is a Navy Reservist from Miami, FL. He & his husband, Jaime A.
