Join PFLAG As We Rally for Repeal

PFLAG supporters and allies are invited to join our very own Dan Tepfer this Friday, March 13th, as he joins other veterans and activists from across the country to urge Congress to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Colonel Tepfer will be among the speakers convening of the lawn of the U.S. Capitol and calling on lawmakers to pass the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, a Congressional bill to end the military's prohibition on lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans. A PFLAG board member who has been a vocal critic of the military's ban, Tepfer will highlight the impact of the law on America's families.

PFLAG executive director Jody Huckaby will be among those gathering at noon on Friday to cheer on Colonel Tepfer and show support for the repeal campaign. And, if you would like to join them as well, just click here to RSVP.

Then, be sure to tune in on Friday evening as Colonel Tepfer talks about his day on Capitol Hill on Sirius Out Q's Derek and Romaine Show. We'll be kicking off a regular PFLAG segment on the show, highlighting our work on federal, state and local issues, and talking about PFLAG's work to stand with families across the country as they work to move equality forward.

The Derek and Romaine Show airs fropm 6-10pm EST on Sirius Out Q, and Colonel Tepfer will on the air beginning at 8:30pm on Friday. (If you are not a subscriber to Sirius, but would like to listen in on Friday, click here to sign up for a free, trial subscription and listen in live.)
