On Tuesday, April 27th, Congressman Steve Cohen will host a Telephone Town Hall meeting, basically a virtual town hall conducted via conference call.

Gay rights advocate Tommy Simmons is asking supporters of the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and those backing the repeal of the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) policy to call in and urge Cohen to take more action on issues.

Though Cohen is a co-sponsor of ENDA and legislation asking for the repeal of DADT, Simmons says "at this critical time, simply supporting the legislation is not enough. He must aggressively fight to secure passage."
