Bradley Whitford took time out from a film shoot in Calgary to make this video on the importance of opposing retroactive immunity for telecom companies that wiretapped Americans without a warrant. He is calling on all of us to contact our Senators and ask them to support Sen. Dodd's promised filibuster.

Telecom immunity is scheduled to be discussed this week and it is crucial that all of our Senators hear from us before they vote. We need 40 votes to sustain Sen. Dodd's filibuster, if it comes to that.

The Courage Campaign teamed up today with CREDO Action (from Working Assets) to send this video out to all of our members asking them to call Senator Dianne Feinstein. You can report back on your calls to Sen. Feinstein here and find all of her regional office numbers.

Or, if you don't live in California, use the Capitol Switchboard number to reach your Senator 202.224.3121. Flood their phone lines and fill up their voicemail!

Can you help us out?
