This Friday, the Servicemebers Legal Defense Network, an organization dedicated to ending "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," is hosting a "Freedom to Serve Rally" and lobby day at the Capitol to press Congress to end the policy and to send the message that the American people will not be satisfied until gay men and women are allowed to serve openly in the military.
To RSVP for the rally this Friday, go to the facebook event or register through SLDN's website.
This fight has recently become very personal for many of us at GW. Todd Belok, my fraternity brother and friend, was recently removed from the Navy ROTC program here, and it has enlivened many on campus to take action on this vital issue.
President Obama has pledged to repeal it, and leaders in Congress have promised to make it a priority. Attend the rally and hold them accountable for their promises.
Go to the rally this Friday. It's probably the last day you're in town before Spring Break and let's face it, you should probably do a good deed before hitting up Daytona.
