    While we have to generate the pressure on all Senators, the decision to filibuster (or not) will also be a leadership decision.

    Call the Leadership Offices!

    Harry Reid, NV Democratic Leader (202) 224-3542

    Dick Durbin, IL Assistant Democratic Leader (202) 224-2152

    Patrick Leahy, VT Ranking Member Judiciary Committee (202) 224-4242



    If Repug, tell them "No" to Alito; if Democrat: FILIBUSTER!
    If the Washington lines are busy, the Senators' home office numbers and fax are listed here: CONTACT YOUR SENATORS (Click here)

    For extra credit, use the same numbers to call all the 2008 Presidential candidates who are sitting Senators - Evan Bayh, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, and John Kerry - and tell them to either LEAD THE FILIBUSTER or FORGET ABOUT YOUR SUPPORT. You can also send that message to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (202-224-2447) and the Democratic National Committee (202-863-8000).

    Polls and public opinion are another way to apply pressure -- get word out about why Alito needs to be filibustered:

    Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. (Click here)

    People for the American Way has collected nearly 65,000 signatures to send to the Senate, please add yours: Save the Court Petition

    John Kerry has endorsed this anti-Alito petition, signers' names will be read into the Congressional Record:
