GetEQUAL: ‘We are gearing up for one of our largest DADT actions so far’

Via email from GetEQUAL:

This week, activists across the country are gathering in their local communities to send a message to their Senators that repealing DADT is the right thing to do. When Senators come back to Washington next week, we’ve got to continue that momentum in a big way.

We are gearing up for one of our largest DADT actions so far. Will you commit to joining us in the last chance to repeal DADT for good?

We’re planning a high-impact action in DC next week to ensure that key decision-makers get the message that selling out the LGBT community in order to placate ultra-conservative fears is unacceptable.

Hmmm. GetEQUAL has pulled off some pretty major actions in DC, Miami, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

A high-impact action in DC? Largest DADT action so far? I’m intrigued. Very intrigued.
