|Advocates urge calls to senators on behalf of DADT vote|

Local activists are urging supporters of a repeal of the military’s anti-gay “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to call local senators to plea for a “yes” vote on the 2011 Defense Authorization bill cloture vote tentatively scheduled for tonight.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to bring a vote to the full Senate tonight, if time allows.
Here is a script, provided by one of our readers:
Hello, my name is __________ and I'm calling from __________ (city, state).
I know that the Senate may vote today on the repeal of the military's failed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. On behalf of our troops and their families, I'm calling to tell the senator that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" needs to be repealed before this session of Congress adjourns. This discrimination is wrong and I believe that it is critical that the U.S. Senate bring an end to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" immediately.
Will Senator _________ vote to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" today?
