Granite State to Sen. Gregg:  Repeal DADT Now!

Activists in New Hampshire are taking a stand against the military’s discriminatory policy, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. This past week, volunteers and supporters have really stepped up to the plate to let Senator Judd Gregg know that the Granite State believes that our gay and lesbian servicemembers should be able to serve without being forced to lie about who they are. From a phonebank and letter writing party in Concord, to petitioning in Market Square, Portsmouth, to canvassing the crowds at a popular Manchester gathering place, it’s been a busy week. We have to keep the momentum going during this critical final push for repeal. On Saturday, July 24th, 2010, between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., we’ll have folks out at the Concord Farmer’s Market on Capitol Street and at the Portsmouth Farmer’s Market at City Hall, so if you’d like to join in on the battlefield, please let me know at Christine.Sloane@hrc.org. Stay tuned for an upcoming screening of the PBS documentary, Ask Not, in Portsmouth. If you’d like to see this moving, 50 minute portrayal of what it really means to serve under DADT, but can’t make it to the Seacoast, consider hosting a screening! Contact me for details!
