DeKalb Dems at Pride! Get your t shirt!

The Atlanta Pride Parade is happening on October 14th. We’re lining up on West Peachtree near the Civic Center Marta Station near Ivan Allen. We will be there at 9:30am to secure our spot in Section D. If you get there early, maybe you can do some canvassing in the crowd. 🙂 If you are attending, please make sure you’re there by 11:30 because the parade steps off at noon sharp.

We’re going to have t shirts for sale. If you want to secure yours, place an order by this Friday, September 28th. You can use this form. http://goo.gl/HvRFLM
