Call your Senators Today! Ask them to co-sponsor the new "Military Readiness Enhancement Act" bill which will repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
Senator Joe Leiberman just introduced the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, which would repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and put in place a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. It's crucial that we keep up the pressure on our Senators to co-sponsor this bill and end DADT this year.
Call the Senate switchboard now at 202-224-3121 and ask to speak with each of your Senators.
Example Script for Your Call:
Hello, my name is __________ and I'm calling from __________ (city, state). I'm calling to urge the Senator to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and co-sponsor the Military Readiness Enhancement Act. This discrimination is wrong. Firing qualified service members simply because they're gay needs to stop in 2010. Will the Senator cosponsor the Military Readiness Enhancement Act?
