No 2 Mark Green as Army Secretary - Join the Citizen Filibuster

 **Below is the letter that will be sent to your senator after you complete the form**

 
 



Dear Senator,

I am writing today to urge you to vote no on the nomination of Mark Green as Secretary of the Army.

Mr. Green has demonized and made hateful statements and actions towards women, Muslims and LGBT people. His actions and words stands in stark contrast to the American values of justice, fairness and tolerance we all hold dear. The U.S. Army deserves a Secretary who values duty over division and honor over hatred.

For too long the LGBT community was marginalized, discriminated against and persecuted in the armed services with Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) and the ban on transgender service members. We will not go back and we will not tolerate someone who is the antithesis of the core values of the Army to be heading the largest force in the world as it's Secretary.

LGBT service members and veterans have served this nation since its’ founding and have fought and died to protect our freedoms. They should never again be separated into a lesser class of citizens because of their sexual orientation, gender expression or gender identity. And they should never again be subject to discrimination simply because they are trying to serve their country. But that’s exactly what the nomination of Mark Green espouses.

We urge a no vote on Mark and we will continue to raise our voices in opposition to this harmful nomination.

Thank you.
