YPN Speaker Series: Taking On The Trans Military Ban

This July, President Trump upended years of military research and planning by summarily banning transgender people from military service. Since then, multiple court cases have challenged the ban, leaving current and future trans servicemembers living in frightening uncertainty. Our panel of veterans and other experts will discuss the current state of the ban, as well as their thoughts on the future of trans and LGB people in the armed forces in America.

On Tuesday, November 28th, please join us for a panel discussion on this important topic, featuring:

Joshua Block
Senior Staff Attorney, ACLU LGBT & HIV Project

Stephen Lessard
Former U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Officer, Member of The LGBT Bar's Military Law Working Group

Evan Young

Coco Culhane
Founder and Director of the Veterans Advocacy Project at Urban Justice Center
