Like many of Becky’s mentors, Army Veteran Brenda Sue Fulton’s list of accomplishments is longer than a CVS receipt and chock full of lasting impact. Weaving her activism with community building, she has been a key player in ending the military’s discriminatory “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and ending the military’s ban on openly serving transgender people.
A graduate of West Point’s first class to admit women, Sue shares her insights on how to muster the personal courage to keep going in the face of massive resistance.
- Stories can be more effective and more important than raising money
- How Becky and Sue founded Knights Out together and inspired dozens of West Point graduates to come out of the closet in support of ending “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
- How Sue inspired SPARTA to pursue ending the ban on openly serving transgender people a decade sooner than anyone thought was possible
- Knowing your true north is where you find the personal courage to keep going even when you are scared – and you will be scared.
- You can’t change minds until you change hearts.
- Once you change hearts you just have to clear the friction.
