GetEqual’s Robin McGehee, who was arrested Thursday with Lt. Dan Choi at the White House as part of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” protest, filmed a statement explaining why GetEqual is taking action and pushing for a repeal of DADT and a trans-inclusive ENDA.
“We believe we need to do more than lobbying, making phone calls, and giving money to people who are not making true to the promises we were given. And that’s the reason that we organized with Lt. Dan Choi and Cpt. James Pietrangelo today, to take action at the White House where true pressure needs to be given. Everyone knows that without repeal language added to the defense authorization bill, that there is not a true course or a true plan of action that will be successful by this year’s end.”
