Disarm Hate

The Disarm Hate rally took place on August 13th at West Potomac Park near the Washington Monument. Its goal is “LGBTQ equal rights & realistic gun law reform,” and is allied with a large number of other groups, including the Newtown Action Alliance, the Trevor Project, and the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence.
I heard several of the speakers, including the incredibly moving Christine Leinonen whose son Drew died at Pulse, and Mathew, brother of Vicki Soto, who died at Sandy Hook while trying to protect her students.
