Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is finally history. You already knew that.

But did you know Brown alumnus, Aaron Belkin ’88, played an instrumental role in overturning this policy?

Harvard Law Professor Janet Halley says of Belkin "Probably no single person deserves more credit” for its repeal.

Brown Club OC in cooperation with TBGALA and the Asian American Alumni Association is honored to present its 3rd annual Democracy in America lecture series as it welcomes Professor Aaron Belkin of San Francisco State University discussing:

How We Won: Progressive Lessons from the Repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Don’t miss this fascinating discussion of how the unconventional tactics of Belkin’s Michael Palm Center helped to reverse discrimination in the military - and how these tactics challenge conventional progressive wisdom about how to effect social change.

The event will be held at 75 Shady Canyon Drive, Irvine 92693 and complimentary refreshments will be served. The location is in the beautiful, gated community of Shady Canyon and advance registration is required for admittance.
