David Mixner Is Getting All MLK Jr. Over Get Equal’s Ballsy Move

SOUNDBITES — “These dedicated, brave and inspirational protesters who came of age yesterday have my unequivocal support. No longer will I be silent in the face of this growing injustice. Whether they are the beginning of a new wave and new tactics for this community has yet to be seen. This much I do know: I plan on giving money, signing up and supporting GetEqual.org to see where it leads us. They have proven to me they deserve a chance. After all, eighteen years later we still have “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. What are we waiting for?” —Activist David Mixner, celebrating yesterday’s actions with a nod toward Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (via)
