Did you know that ADA was one of the first organizations to support equal rights for lesbian and gay Americans? That's right. We started advocating on behalf of the LGBT community as far back as the 1950s.
Today, we are just as committed to realizing full equality for every American. That's why we have officially endorsed the National Equality March.
Will you join us? We want you to march with us this Sunday, October 11th.
When and where?
ADA members will meet at 11:30 am at our national headquarters at 1625 K Street, NW, Suite 210.
We will then proceed to the march launch at 15th and I (eye) Streets, NW.
Will you march? Sign up here.

Americans for Democratic Action Lauds DC Marriage Equality Bill
Americans for Democratic Action proudly supports the efforts of District of Columbia Councilmember David Catania and the other sponsors of the Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Amendment Act of 2009.
The law would permit same-sex couples the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples.
ADA National Director Michael J. Wilson said: "ADA strongly supports the DC city council's efforts to bring marriage equality to the nation's capital. We believe that discrimination should never, ever be enshrined in law and that our nation's capital should be leading the way.
"Until the District achieves statehood, the right to self-government is under constant threat from Federal lawmakers seeking to score easy political points with their supporters back home. We believe that Councilmember Catania's patient and thoughtful approach to marriage equality will result in little or no Federal interference at present."
