Right to Serve Campaign: Norman, Oklahoma
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 Norman area will begin a sit-in.
Lauren Topliffe is leading this campaign in Norman to show the American people how this law is government-sanctioned discrimination.
On Wednesday, September 13th, Nichole Rawls – an competent and capable young woman – went in to enlist in the U.S.Army. She was denied.
