In December of 2010, Congress passed the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which prevented gay and lesbian people from openly serving in the military. Congressional repeal of DADT then became effective in September 2011. Join WLSA, OutLaw, and ACS as we reflect on the repeal of DADT with a panel of lawyers that helped achieve this victory for equality in the military. Our panelists will discuss their work on the issue, including lobbying Congress and arguing before the Ninth Circuit in Log Cabin Republicans v. United States. Food will be provided.
