Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Just a weeks ago, the new 111th Congress was sworn in on Capitol Hill.

That means there are dozens of freshman members settling into their offices right now, figuring out their legislative priorities for the coming weeks and months.

We have to tell the new Congress just how important it is to pass the Military Readiness Enhancement Act – legislation that will repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and replace it with a non-discrimination law.

The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network is already busy at work, scheduling meetings with Senators and Representatives to talk about the importance of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in this legislative cycle. But they don't want to walk into these offices alone - they want us there with them. SLDN wants to be able to hand each office a stack of thousands of names of people across the country committed to lifting the ban.

I've already signed their petition. Will you sign it too?
