Lady Gaga brings the fight to the Senate! Join our fight.
The House has spoken - again! In a historic vote on December 15th, by a margin of 250-175, the House of Representatives passed a new standalone bill (H.R. 2965) that would repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Now the ball is in the Senate’s court.
We call upon the Senate to remain in session and in Washington until they pass the House bill to repeal "Don’t Ask, Don't Tell." Show your rage for repeal and insist the Senate stay in Washington until they have finished the job.
Call both your senators at the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
Here's a sample script for your call:
"Hello, my name is ______ and I’m a constituent from __________ (city, state).
I'm calling to tell Senator _______ to stand with Majority Leader Reid, Chairman Levin, and Senator Lieberman and vote for the House bill to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Fight back against Senators John McCain and Mitch McConnell's obstructionism and pass repeal this year.
Call the Capitol switchboard today!
