Right to Serve Campaign: Chicago, Illinois
In 30 cities across the country this fall, openly gay young adults will attempt to enlist in the armed forces. Never before in the 13 years of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ have openly gay youth publicly challenged the policy by attempting to sign up for the service. When their right to serve is denied, young adults — both gay and straight — from across the Chicago land area will begin a sit-in.
Kelsey Pacha and Rob Fojtik are leading this campaign in Chicago to show the American people how this law is government-sanctioned discrimination.
August 22 – Openly GLBT young adults attempted to sign up for the armed forces.
September 12 – A sit-in protest was held.
