Law Students Against Alito

Friday, November 11, 2005

Welcome to the Good Fight

We have created this website to organize a national network of law students who oppose the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Here’s what you can do to make our generation’s voice heard.

First, sign our petition to the Senate opposing the nomination.

Second, if your school does not already have a group opposing the nomination, help start one. E-mail us if you would like help getting started, and we will link your efforts to those on campuses around the country.

We have set up pages for each Gang of 14 state below to coordinate law student efforts. Please post news, links, event announcements, and other information for the LSAA effort in your state.

While we encourage you to be creative in planning activities at your school, we should all call and write our Senators. You can find information on contacting your Senators by clicking on the state entry below. You can also ask to set up meetings with your Senators and their staffs to let them know that law students oppose Alito’s nomination. These can be powerful influences on a Senator’s decision.

You should also write a letter to the editor in your local newspaper, which will be read on the Hill and by your fellow citizens. The state pages contain sample letters and contact information for newspapers.

If you have questions or ideas for what we can do, please contact us at againstalito@yahoo.com.

If you would like us to set up an area for a state that's outside the Gang of 14, just let us know.
