Today hundreds of volunteers with the Human Rights Campaign are on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress on an array of LGBT issues including ENDA and repeal of DADT. You can join the action no matter where you're located through the HRC Repeal DADT Now Virtual Lobby Day.
This is a smart way of combining online and offline action. The more pressure we put on members of Congress, the faster we'll see DADT repealed and advancement on other key LGBT issues.
- First, go to our special action page where you can email your elected officials.
- Follow-up with a phone call. The Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121. Tell them where you live, and they'll connect you to any of your lawmakers' offices. Tell your lawmakers that you're calling to urge Congress to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" this year.
- Spread the word on Facebook. You can also RSVP to the virtual lobby day event and invite your friends.
- Use Twitter to spread the word. Our volunteer lobbyists will be tweeting from the Capitol using the #DADT hashtag. Once you take action, tweet about the experience and join the conversation.
