RIGHT TO SERVE
Welcome to Tampa! As the only city in Florida taking part in the Right To Serve Campaign, we hope to draw support from the entire state. There is no question as to if we are going to overcome this policy. We WILL. The only question you have to answer, right here and now is:
Do I want to be a part of this national, historic movement that takes on government-sanctioned discrimination?
If you answered yes, then do we have something in store for you! Below we have a few options of how you personally fit into this campaign here in Tampa, Fl:
Option 1: Campus or Area Organizer – For this option, you would be in charge of getting together a group of interested people for our campaign sit-in. You would be in charge of getting together a group of people who might be interested in a presentation that Michael and Marietta (city organizers) will come out and present. You would also be the contact person for Michael and Marietta for your campus or area.
Option 2: The Enlistee – Be a VITAL role in our states campaign! If you genuinely want to serve this great country, and are willing to sign up for the Military as an open Gay, Lesbian, or Bisexual American, then we want you! Please sign up for the campaign and email Michael or Marietta with you interest in enlisting.
Option 3: *Most Important* Sit-In Soldier – You can scroll down to the bottom of this page and sign up to be at the sit-in. The sit-in is one of the most important parts of this campaign. We have to be able to show that we are serious and that we are large in numbers. You can be a Sit-In Soldier and NOT be arrested. Let me repeat, you DO NOT have to be arrested to be a Sit-In Soldier. If you choose to submit to arrest our lawyer who will be present for ANY PERSON IN THIS CAMPAIGN; FOR ANY COURT OR LEGAL APPERIANCES FREE OF CHARGE TO ALL OF OUR PARTICIPANTS. If you would like to be a Sit-In Soldier, we are going to be holding a meeting on the 3rd at the metro center in Tampa starting at 5:45pm. (6421 North Florida Ave. Tampa, 33604)
Please mark your calendars; our sit-in will take place October 6th at 765 W Brandon Blvd. Potential enlistees should arrive at 9am, and general supporters at 10am. The press conference will begin at 10:30am. We will attempt enlistment immediately following, and then stay until closing time.
Thank you for visiting Tampa’s page. We truly do appreciate your time. Don’t forget to sign up below so we know who will be here.
Can’t wait to see ya!
