Synopsis >

Kathy Griffin gets a call from the president of the Human Rights Campaign who tells her she is being honored with the Ally For Equality award at the annual HRC dinner. When California State Senator Barbara Boxer (D) speaks at the event about Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the importance in fighting for its repeal, Kathy decides she wants to do whatever she can to help the cause. The next day, Kathy and Team Griffin head to Washington. Kathy gets the opportunity to meet with some of the soldiers for whom she is fighting. Kathy makes her case to Congress and things go as well as can be expected. Boosted by the adrenaline rush from speaking in front of the Senate, Kathy gets an idea to build even more support and sends out an urgent tweet for all of her followers to come to D.C. to help stage a peaceful, but powerful protest on the mall.
