Working in Massachusetts to Repeal DADT

The post-election session of Congress started off with a bang on Monday.  Starting at 10am, 12 students from Brandeis University held a flash phone bank from the school dining hall.  At the end of the day they had generated 225 constituents calls into Senator Brown's office in support of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal.  In one of the calls the receptionist actually knew the Brandeis students!  The receptionist said the office had received hundreds of calls and people were noticing our efforts. And last night, Clark University students sat down to write letters to Senator Brown. Clark University is perhaps best known as the setting of Sigmund Freud's lecture series on psychoanalysis.  Now the statue of Freud serves as a fun post letter writing back ground. Student activism continues tonight with a SLDN panel discussion at Wheaton College. What: Discussion with veterans on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Where: Wheaton College 26 East Main Street Norton, MA 02766 Mary Lyon Hall When: Tuesday, November 16th at 7 pm
