Iraq War veteran and gay rights activist Eric Alva will speak at Rockford College October 20, 7 p.m. in the college’s Maddox Theatre.

Alva will discuss his quest to have the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy repealed and the difficulties the policy causes the military's gay and lesbian community. Alva uses his own experiences dealing with the policy to urge audiences to support his goal and to help create equality and support for the GLBT community members who serve our country. The talk is being held as part of Diversity Awareness Month.

Tickets to Alva’s talk are free and can be secured through the Rockford College box office in the Clark Arts Center, phone 815-226-4100.
