SALT urges Pelosi to schedule vote to repeal DADT

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
United States Congress
235 Cannon HOB
Washington, DC 20515
 
Dear Speaker Pelosi:
 
The Society of American Law Teachers – SALT – is writing to encourage you to schedule a vote on repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell when the House considers the Department of Defense Fiscal Year 2011 Authorization Request bill the week of May 24.  As Speaker of the House, you serve an important role at this critical time.  SALT is speaking for the thousands of men and women in uniform who are unable to speak for themselves.  Don’t Ask Don’t Tell undermines national security, wastes taxpayer dollars, and is the only law in the country that requires people to be dishonest about their personal lives or face the possibility of being fired.  The time for action is now.
