Dear Enraged and Engaged Activists,

Thank you for all the tremendous work you’ve done at home, at school, and many of you in Washington, D.C., to defeat the Alito nomination. The judiciary committee vote, with all eight democrats voting NO, was an encouraging first step.

Despite rumors in the media, all hope is not lost. The Senate Democrats can FILIBUSTER. We’re asking for one last push from our dedicated activists. Please call the Senators listed below to implore them to filibuster to save the Court from the radical right wing agenda. The support of these Senators is crucial in mounting a filibuster. And a no vote without a filibuster is a meaningless gesture. Our Senators’ commitment to women’s rights is a hollow shell if they will not fight to preserve them.

It only takes a few moments to call the offices of the Senators listed below, and your call could truly tip the balance and save the court.

Sen. Blanche Lincoln 202-224-4843
Sen. Mark Pryor 202-224-2353

Sen. Joseph Lieberman 202-224-4041

Sen. Mary Landrieu 202-224-5824

North Dakota:
Sen. Byron Dorgan 202-224-2551
Sen. Kent Conrad 202-224-2043

South Dakota:
Sen. Tim Johnson 202-224-5842

West Virginia:
Se. Robert Byrd 202-224-3954

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
