Asking and Telling
Real-life stories behind "Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”

Featuring a rich array of special guest speakers.

Let’s let the famous politicians debate the military and political merits of the U.S. military’s most controversial policy. At Alliant we are more interested in the personal side.

Asking and Telling is a community event that will paint a rich picture of the lives, values and struggles of some of our bravest servicemen and women. Everyone is invited. Come help create a safe space, where we can listen to storytelling, panel discussion, legal updates and multimedia presentations. Don’t miss the lively and respectful audience Q & A!
