Theresa, thank you for your action.

When speaking to thousands at the gates of Fort Benning, Theresa asked all of us to contact the mainstream media to get the word out about the SOA and the movement to shut it down: "Our message is not being heard in Congress, our lawmakers have been purchased by other priorities, so youth and students in the movement ask for you to help us in the Court of Public Opinion and go online to the Daily Show's Facebook page, register in for their Forum. Request that Father Roy be invited onto the Daily Show, and the Colbert Report. Don't stop until we get Roy's voice into the media mainstream, Hardball with Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and the Sunday morning circuit. Don't let my civil action go to waste." Please ask the following shows to invite Father Roy to speak the chris matthews show hardball@msnbc.com and call (202) 885-4600 Rachel Maddow and Rachel@msnbc.com
