Planning a protestNovember 10, 2008
How did I get roped into going to a protest planning meeting?? I attended the Dallas Stonewall board meeting (the last in which I’ll be a member of the board). They needed a representative from Stonewall to go and I asked the Magic 8 Ball application on my phone if I should go. It said that I should so I volunteered (by the way, I asked a similar app on my old phone that told me I should go to grad school). I’m glad I went. I got to see some impassioned people and better yet, they’re new. They’ve never held a protest before and don’t know much about politics. However, I like their energy and I suspect we’ll have a great turnout at the protest in six days (mostly because I understand the power of Facebook). Sadly, I’ll be in Austin for the Texas Young Democrats and a Texas Democrats meeting. I’ll want to be in Dallas for it but I will be at a protest!
