Photo of the Day: DADT Repeal Organizing at the Duke/Butler Championship Game

FINAL FOUR 026 The Butler Bulldogs suffered a heartbreaking loss last night in the NCAA men's college basketball championship to the Duke Blue Devils.  However, Bulldog fans refuse to lose the fight to repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” this year.  Our volunteers took advantage of the beautiful spring Indiana weather and the massive energy of the crowds yesterday to find fans of repealing “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” While it may not have been a victory for the Butler Bulldogs on the court, it was a victory off the court.  People from all over Indiana signed postcards urging Senator Bayh to vote to repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” And even though Bulldog fans will have to wait until next year for another chance at the NCAA Championship Title, they resoundingly say they will not wait that long to repeal this discriminatory law.
