Coming Up: Open House SF & Swords To Plowshares to Present on LGBTQ Veterans

Coming up on Friday, November 19th, 2020 @ 1:00 p.m.

Join Bob Alexander, an attorney at Swords to Plowshares, for a presentation about LGBTQ former servicemembers. Bob will discuss: the challenges faced by LGBTQ former servicemembers as a result of their military service, including how many have been conditioned to not to think about themselves as veterans; their over-representation in risk categories experienced by other veterans and under-representation in receiving VA services and benefits; how LGBTQ veterans with discharges that are less than fully honorable may gain access VA services and benefits, and have their discharges upgraded; the best practices for finding LGBTQ servicemembers in need of assistance; and the impact of COVID-19 on benefits. Bob will answer questions from community members and provide information about obtaining evaluations of their cases.
