SOME BACKGROUND ON THE COMPROMISE:

DADT repeal language will very likely be inserted into the Defense Appropriations Bill in both the House and Senate with the President's backing. Sounds good, right? NO! THE REPEAL LANGUAGE IS FAR FROM EQUAL AND REMOVES ANY ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE PEOPLE, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

From the Advocate:

"LGBT groups met with officials at the White House while legislative affairs representatives from the White House and the Department of Defense met with the House and Senate leadership offices on Capitol Hill along with those of Rep. Patrick Murphy and Sens. Carl Levin and Joseph Lieberman."



We must do all we can to insist that the repeal be a full repeal - not another bogus attempt at pacifying our community.

Thank you for participating in the SAY NO TO DADT COMPROMISE CALL TO ACTION.
