Fletcher in the News

A Conversation with Alisha Guffey (F16) on the ASK and TELL Project

In a conversation with the Tufts Daily, Alisha Guffey, F16, describes the motivation behind the start of her ASK and TELL Project. The project, which she started while at Fletcher, provides a platform for LGBTQ veterans and service members to share their stories with the purpose of transforming military culture into a more inclusive one that acknowledges and celebrates service members who are typically silenced. Guffey now a fellow at the U.S. State Department, describes that "the project was first funded by [a Tufts grant] and it was supported by a mentorship with Professor Jennifer Burton, Rockford Weitz and consultations with Kimberly Theidon".
