House Vote Soon on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Take Action With NOW!!

The end is in sight for the unjust and discriminating Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. To date, more than 10,000 lesbian and gay service members have been discharged from the military because of this policy. To end this policy, we need your help.

This week a key vote is taking place in the House of Representatives on the Defense Authorization bill, and we expect Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.) to introduce an amendment that would repeal DADT. Unfortunately, the amendment will likely include a delay in implementation of the repeal until after the Defense Department has completed its study of the issue. At the very least, there should be a reasonable time limit on any such delay.

Please click HERE to see what you can do to take action!
