Palm Center Statement on President Obama’s SOTU Call For DADT Repeal Implementation in 2011

Santa Barbara, Calif. – The following statement can be attributed to Aaron Belkin, Executive Director of the Palm Center:

“For years, experts have said that a swift repeal process, accompanied by strong leadership, is the best way to repeal ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ In promising in his State of the Union address to implement the repeal of the ban this year, President Obama has demonstrated leadership and committed to the path that has been proven to be best not only for gay service members, but for all of those who currently serve.”
