Working toward comprehensive immigration reform

Women comprise only 15 percent of the military but account for 34 percent of discharges. The Service Women's Action Network (SWAN) is doing something about it.

We thank SWAN for stepping up. Help get the word out: LGBT Women in the Military Helpline 1.888.729.2095.

Hugh Broadus has had a leadership role on the committee for our annual D.C. Leadership Awards, now called the D.C. Recognition Evening, for many years.

Recognition Evening on May 11 and meet Hugh — and find out what the Task Force is up to!
