Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Celebrate End of Don't Ask, Don't Tell
September 20, 2011
The end of the discriminatory ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy is a milestone for civil rights in America. The Congressional Progressive Caucus has long supported the LGBT community in the battle against this failed policy, which is responsible for the discharge of more than 13,000 highly qualified American service members. This misguided policy forced an additional estimated 65,000 service members to hide who they are to serve the country they love.
