End Don't Ask, Don't Tell
The military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy is an unfair, outdated measure that violates the civil rights of some of our bravest, most heroic men and women.
Recently Kirsten Gillibrand, who replaced Hillary Clinton as U.S. senator from New York, convinced Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin to agree to hold hearings on DADT this fall. These hearings will be the first formal re-assessment of the policy since Congress passed the law in 1993! Although this is a critical milestone on the road to repeal, our work is not done.
We must all join together to speak up on behalf of the brave men and women who want to serve their country. Stand with Kirsten Gillibrand in support of repealing DADT and show that America is ready to do the right thing for its LGBT military personnel.

I stand with Kirsten Gillibrand in support of repealing the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy. DADT is an unfair, outdated measure that violates the civil rights of some of our bravest, most heroic men and women.
Numerous military leaders are already telling us that this policy should be reversed. Having lost over 13,000 of our brightest to this policy, including 800 in "mission critical" areas such as 10% of our Arabic and Farsi speakers, and wasting nearly $200 million in training and recruitment costs, the time for change is now.
