We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the continued imposition of the United States Government's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on the military. We believe it weakens the military and offends fundamental American values of fairness and equality.
We are deeply proud of those Stanford students and alumni who have served this country in the military in the past, and we applaud those who choose to do so in the future.
We also applaud Stanford Law School for fighting to uphold its own core value - that all members of our community are treated equally, with dignity and respect.
The United States government has forced Stanford to host interviews on campus that exclude gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered students, regardless of their merit and patriotism. In doing so, the government has
undermined the very policies that have made Stanford a thriving center for learning and a desirable place to recruit legal talent. We have long recognized that Stanford is only made stronger by the diversity of its community and by the shared understanding that all of us benefit when we treat each other equally and fairly.
We hope that as members of Congress, you will vote to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" so that all Americans can serve openly and honorably in the military, regardless of sexual orientation.
