A Vote on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is Imminent - Act Now


The Senate is scheduled to vote in a matter of days on whether to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" – but anti-equality senators led by John McCain have threatened to filibuster the bill; we'll need every single vote to win.

Years of political groundwork are on the line here, and there's no guarantee this will be a victory.

Countless lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans have and will continue to serve in the U.S. military with distinction. The only question is whether they will have to lie about their sexual orientation to do so. 

We need your help to show that a majority of Americans want this discriminatory law repealed – once and for all. Every senator needs to know this is important, whether they're already on our side or not.

We have a chance to make history. Please, write your senators today.
