The time is now! After 17 years, Americans may finally see the end of the failed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Ask” law that has picked apart the ranks of our Armed Forces and has forced service members to lie about who they are.

Yesterday, aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid confirmed that the vote on the annual defense authorization bill, which includes language to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” could occur next week.

Now, more than ever, is the time to contact your senators and let them know that the American people want to see this law repealed!

Taking action is simple. Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121, let them know where you live and that you want to speak to one of your senators. Once you are connected to your senator’s office, tell them where you are from (so that they know that you are a constituent) and that want to see “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repealed.

After you have called, we would love to here about it. Jump over to our action page and let us know about it. We can’t do this alone though; make sure that you push every one of your friends and family through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and all of your social networks.

Together we can make this law disappear once and for all.
