Senator Warner: Support DADT Repeal Now!

On Wednesday, veterans and military families came together for a meeting with Senator Mark Warner’s Vienna staff. We were warmly received and the constituents quickly made friends with the staff. They made a compelling, objective case for repeal of the discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law. While Senator Warner has, regrettably, failed to publicly come out in support of repeal, we are hopeful that he will hear the calls of the veterans and constituents across the Commonwealth who wish to see this law promptly repealed. Until DADT is repealed HRC organizers will be across Virginia, talking to voters and demonstrating widespread grassroots support for repeal. I’m back in Southwest Virginia, working with veterans and community leaders on this historic campaign. We have meetings next week with Senator Warner’s offices in Roanoke, Richmond and Norfolk. If you are a Virginia resident and haven’t already, call Senator Warner’s office today at 202-224-2023 and tell his staff that you support repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
