MJ served three tours in Afghanistan as a rescue helicopter pilot, was shot down by enemy fire while defending crew and patients, and earned a Purple Heart. When she returned home, she partnered with the ACLU to open all military jobs to women. She spent four years leading the charge to ensure all jobs in the military are open for competition to both men and women without compromising standards. She currently speaks around the world about civil rights, leadership, and how to be an effective change agent on a global level. She wholeheartedly believes in the ability of everyday people to protect our progress, whether by running for office, getting out and voting, or volunteering in our community.
