Tim Connor Discussion 

When: Thu., Jan. 25, 12 p.m. 2018
Price: Free and open to the public.
Major Margie Witt was discharged from the U.S. military for being in a same-sex relationship, found in violation of the old “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy even though her sexuality was unknown until someone revealed it to her military superiors. Rather than go quietly, Witt and her now-wife Laurie Johnson went to court to fight the unfair policy, ultimately winning a landmark case that opened the military to all who want to serve. Witt and investigative reporter Tim Connor co-authored a book about the case, Tell: Love, Defiance, and the Military Trial at the Tipping Point for Gay Rights, and Connor will discuss the long legal road that led to Witt’s win on the Gonzaga campus.

Thu, Jan. 25 at noon • Free and open to the public • Gonzaga University, School of Law courtroom • 721 N. Cincinnati St. •
