Now's the time to make the calls on DADT! It is vitally important that people in the states I listed talk to Snowe and Collins, Kirk, Lugar, Brown, Pryor(D), and Murkowski!

You can get contact info for your congresspeople here: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/directory/search_re...

Do not hesitate. Today is the day to act on the issue we have been talking about for years. Tell your senators to allow debate on DADT!

For all the talk about political pressure, these urgent calls to action drop like flies and barely manage 5 recs.

WTF!!

This is an urgent call to action. You must call your Senators now.
