Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is going to be bringing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal up for a vote next week, according to the Washington Blade. We need to make sure we have the votes to end this viciously discriminatory policy when it comes to the floor!
The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network identified several “key senators” whose votes will make or break DADT repeal. If we want to make sure DADT finally gets repealed, we must all do our part: Please call one or more (or all!) of the key senators listed below and urge them to support repeal! Even if you do not live in any of these states, DADT is a national issue and we need to make sure the Senate votes our way: if we do not get DADT included in the Defense Authorization Bill this year, it may be several years before we get another chance. So please, pick up your phone and call these senators!

This is the final push: if we all call these senators between now and next week, we can finally see an end to “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” once and for all.
