Today at noon: Aaron Belkin speaks on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), the policy adopted in 1993 that banned openly gay and lesbian people from serving in the U.S. military, finally came to an end last month.
Bring your lunch and come hear Professor Aaron Belkin, one of the nation’s leading experts on DADT, discuss the work that led to its repeal.
This event, sponsored by the UCOP Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex Staff Association (LGBTISA) will be held today, Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 12 to 1 p.m. in Franklin Room 5320. Staff unable to attend in person may listen in through Ready Talk:
