HRC To Launch DADT Ad Campaign

On Monday the Human Rights Campaign will place ads in several major newspapers in key markets urging senators to vote for the National Defense Authorization Act, to which the repeal of DADT is attached. (View large-size ad here.) Via press release:
As part of an all-out push aimed at convincing senators to bring the National Defense Authorization Act to a vote during the Senate’s lame duck session, the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest civil rights organization working toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality, will place full-page ads in the Cleveland Plain Dealer (Ohio), the Boston Herald (Massachusetts), the Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Virginia), and the Indianapolis Star (Indiana) on Monday calling on key senators to put the security of our nation and our troops first. The NDAA funds thousands of defense programs critical to our national security and includes a provision that would repeal the discriminatory and unjust law known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
On the same day the ads are published (Monday), HRC will launch an internet-based campaign urging their members and others to call senators directly on the issue.
