47th Forum on Tolerance
Opportunity and Marginalization in the United States Military
A Conversation about Empowerment and Disenfranchisement.
Virtual Event from April 18th-21st, 2022.

Beginning with the Selective Service Act of 1917 that brought 700,000 BIPOC men to the U.S. military (History, Art, and Archives), the armed services would grow to include women, LGBTQ+ folks, and other historically marginalized populations.  What are some of the experiences of the brave citizens from marginalized groups serving in the military? What was is it like afterward? Was the experience empowering, disempowering, or something else?

This event is co-sponsored by North Shore Community College's Office of Academic Affairs, RAP Experience, and Sheldon and Fran Brown Forum on Tolerance Endowed Fund.
