Phone Bankers Rally on at HRC HQ for DADT Repeal

phone bank post 3-23After busy week of action centered around the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," a group of HRC volunteers came to the building fired up and ready to make a difference. And that is just what they did. Last week hundreds of HRC members were called and encouraged to get engaged and stand up against this discriminatory law by simply contacting their Senators and leaving them a message. Many volunteers heard heart-wrenching stories of veterans and their family members who have been affected by "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and are constantly looking for new ways to take action to help move the issue forward.  Others were able to explain the extensive negative effects of DADT to members who may not have known more about the law than the fact that it wasn't working for our country. Last week's phone bank brought HRC's number of confirmed calls to priority Senators to almost 400 in just a couple of weeks. But we need more - thousands more. Come join our team and help make a difference, one constituent at a time. Upcoming Phone Banks:
