Members of Roanoke Equality and some local military veterans met with Terry over the weekend to talk about this lobbying effort. I can't emphasize enough our need for maximum community involvement. We need your help. Are you an LGBT veteran of the armed forces? This is you chance to tell your story to someone who can affect change and get rid of the shameful, discriminatory policy called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" that compels queer service members to lie about who they are in order to serve their country. The best part is, you don't have to travel to DC to do it. There is no marching involved. No protest rallies, no crowds, no picket signs or press, just a quite meeting in an office. Contact me at email@example.com to get involved.
This is a unique opportunity to make a difference on a national level, right here in Roanoke. I look forward to hearing from you.
This event is being held in Colonial Hall at the Squires Student Center, Wednesday, April 28th, from 7pm - 9pm (est) on the Va. Tech campus (map).
To attend, contact Terry McGuire at 202-294-0784 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
