Hrc_hq_0

In response to President Obama's call in the State of the Union address to end "don't ask, don't tell," the Human Rights Campaign Wednesday night announced a campaign targeting the antigay policy. The Voices of Honor campaign "will organize veterans across the country, generate media coverage, and build focused campaigns in key states that will be critical to the final votes in the House and Senate," the group announced in a release.

Said HRC president Joe Solmonese: "The commander in chief sent a clear message tonight that in a time of war, what matters is that our men and women get the job done -- not whether they're gay or straight. Our Voices of Honor campaign will bring about much needed action to end this law that the vast majority of Americans oppose. Our country simply cannot afford this discriminatory law that hurts military readiness by denying patriotic men and women the opportunity to serve. Ridding our laws of discrimination that weakens our national security will require continued leadership from the president as well as congressional allies."
