Standing Against DADT in Texas
September 17, 2010 by Karl Bach, Senior Regional Field Organizer
As we anticipate the Senate’s upcoming to vote on the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, HRC members across the country take action. Texans who came to the Alamo Draft house in Austin for the Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival (GLIFF) took time between shows to call their senators. By the time we left, three senate voice mails were filled! I also had a chance to address the crowd during “Out Of Annapolis” . I told the crowd that we need to make sure that every senator hears that the time to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is now. Follow this link to find contact information for your senator. Your message can be brief but be sure to include your name, your address and say that it’s time to end the discharges of qualified gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Every call is tallied by Senate staff! We need our senators to vote to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” this year.
