Right to Serve Campaign: New Haven, Connecticut
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 New Haven area will begin a sit-in.
Hugh Baran and Jessie Ellner are leading this campaign in New Haven to show the American people how this law is government-sanctioned discrimination.
Support the youth-led efforts to create an activist movement for LGBT rights. Sign up to participate in the sit-in or make a donation to help cover the cost this campaign in your area. Let us know that you support the right to serve.
