Stop McCain: Tell Your Senators to Repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell!”

    1. Sponsored by

      Human Rights Campaign

We've never had this much momentum to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" - the discriminatory law that forces gays and lesbians to live a lie if they want to serve their country.   

But there's a big problem.  As the Senate prepares for a make-or-break vote, Sen. John McCain and his friends in radical right-wing groups are putting enormous pressure on your senators to vote against equality.

McCain's anti-gay vendetta is so desperate that he's announced he will help block the Senate from repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and the right-wing Family Research Council is making outlandish and bogus claims that that repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" will increase sexual assault in the military and "undermine the religious liberties" of military chaplains.  

We need your help to drown them out and show the Senate that a majority of Americans want this law off the books - once and for all.
