The time for action is now!

This is from my Uncle Alan.  Please do what he asks and make sure to tell your friends.

Dear Friends and Family, I seldom ask for an urgent response, but this is one of those times. Next week the House of Representatives is going to take up the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell issue. It is essential that as many people as possible who wish to see equality of military service for all gay, lesbian and bisexual Americans call the Ho…use of Representatives, at the very least, and your individual Congressional Representative and Senators asking them to support an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that repeals the current Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law.

When calling the House of Representatives switchboard, 202-225-3121, tell them you want to leave a message for Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, urging her to allow a floor vote on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to repeal the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law.

If you want to call your individual Congressman and Senators, please refer to the following website which will provide a link to your individual legislators.

Those of you who live in states whose senators are on the Senate Armed Services Committee, it is especially important to contact their office asking that they support an amendment to the NDAA to repeal the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law. Those senators are listed at the beginning of the above website.

This is the critical time period for Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. We’ll either win or lose in the next week or two, so the more public support these legislators here from us, the better are the chances for repeal of this discriminatory law that has been on the books for 17 years.

Thanks to all,

Al
