During this Congressional Lame Duck session, the National Defense Authorization Act will be passed in the Senate. Included in this act is supposed to be the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, but there are many conflicting reports about whether or not this will happen, or who will vote which way. We can take responsibility for our own equality by contacting the senators listed below, those who are leaning to yes, those who are undecided and even those leaning against the repeal.
The information about how these senators might vote is from ActOnPrinciples whip count, the suggested calls from Alexander Nicholson Executive Director Servicemembers United video, and the various and sundry reports on the internet, including the latest *have-to-call* list from Servicemembers Legal Defense Network(SLDN). Courage Campaign also has a petition they will be sending to Senators McCain and McConnell, so links to those senators who have vowed to vote against equality, are included here because they need to hear from us, too. American Progress Action Center (APAC) reports key senators who said they want to see the final report from the Joint Chiefs of Staff before they vote.
This list includes telephone numbers, fax numbers (download a cellphone fax app), email forms for each senator, and where available Facebook and Twitter, giving us an opportunity to demand that all senators uphold the constitutional rights of every man and women serving with honor and courage in the military today.
