Dave Valk, student outreach coordinator for NEM, said during the silent protest, participants will wear duct tape over their mouths.

 

The protest will move to George Washington University where Lt. Dan Choi and others will speak and ask participants to tear off the duct tape, “because we will no longer be silent on these issues.”

“The ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy is discriminatory, wasteful and dangerous,” said Valk. “The sight of thousands of young people protesting the policy in the streets of Washington will make it clear that the policy is doomed.”

The call to action received endorsements from more than 100 student leaders, including the student body presidents of top universities.

“This is more than a student movement — it’s a civil rights movement,” Valk said.
