|SOA Watch Legislative Update|
Closing the SOA/WHINSEC: New Legislative ResourceYour Senators and Representative represent YOU and your views in Congress in Washington D.C. and they should be accountable for each and every one of the votes they cast. In 2008, the office of the President of the United States and seats in the Senate and House of Representatives are up for grabs!
SOA Watch has created a new legislative resource: the SOA Watch 2008 Elections Packet. Inside you’ll find an introduction to the exciting world of bird-dogging, voting history for your Representative, bird-dogging and direct action opportunities in your community, and more.

Volunteer with the Legislative Working Group!
At this year's Vigil, the Legislative Working Group will embark on a mini legislative campaign to reach out the thousands of activists who will gather at the gates of Fort Benning.
Over 200 thank you cards will be filled with signatures to be given to the members of the House of Representatives who voted YES in June 2007 to prohibit funding for the school.
Thousand of postcards to potential cosponsors of HR 1707 will be filled out at the Vigil site to flood the mailboxes of Congressional offices.
