Dear Readers,
URGENT: The Senate is voting on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" TOMORROW.
Make two calls. Make history.
Stop what you're doing, pick up the phone, and call your senators: The senate has scheduled a final vote on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal for tomorrow.
Even though a majority of senators support repeal, we need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster – and when they last voted, we had 57.
This could be our last chance for years. Every single call counts. And with the vote just hours away, every single minute counts.
Whether your senator is a courageous champion of repeal, or a die-hard opponent – you still need to call. Pro-repeal senators need to know we're counting on them to give every ounce of effort and overcome any last-minute tricks by John McCain and Senate Republican leaders – and those on the wrong side of history need to know their constituents are watching.
Every senator has staff on hand to answer the phones and speak to constituents. Make your quick and easy calls now:
Sen. Robert Casey at (202) 224-6324 and Sen. Arlen Specter at (202) 224-4254.
Right-wing activists are desperately trying to stop this bill, and I can guarantee they are lighting up the phone lines right now. If you don't get through right away, try again.
  1. Call one senator's office, and tell the staff person who answers where you live so they know you're a real constituent.
  2. Tell them you want the senator to support the standalone bill repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" – and that you'll remember how they vote when they're next up for election.
  3. Thank them, hang up, and make your second call to the other senator.
  4. Click here to let us know you made a call – we use this information to guide our lobbying efforts, so please don't skip it.
One more thing: save the Congressional Switchboard number – (202) 224-3121 – in your cell phone right now. Then hand it to a friend, then a co-worker, and ask them to make two calls. While you're at it, tell your family and your Facebook friends to call as well.
We need as many calls as possible in order to make repeal happen in 2010.
I'll be making calls too,

Joe Solmonese
P.S. Years of work, thousands of volunteer hours, hundreds of thousands of phone calls, emails, lobby visits, and town halls come down to this. Please call now, and tell everyone you know to call!
