End United States military involvement in
Saudi Arabia's war against Yemen


Since March 2015, the United States has helped Saudi Arabia fight a war that has turned the country of Yemen into a living hell. With weapons and aircraft supplied by the U.S military, mid-air refueling and targeting services, Saudi warplanes have ruthlessly bombed civilians, hospitals, weddings, funerals, and schools. The United States also provides political cover to the Saudis at the U.N. as they deliberately use starvation and disease as weapons of war. Out of a total population of 28 million, 8 million Yemenis are facing famine and 1 million suffer from cholera. None of this brutality would be possible without continued U.S. support.

Last week a bipartisan group of senators led by Mike Lee (R-UTAH) and Bernie Sanders (IND.-VT), invoking the War Powers Resolution of 1973 (WPR) that entrusted the responsibility of declaring war solely to Congress, has introduced legislation that would end U.S. military involvement in Saudi Arabia's war against Yemen. It is imperative that Congress reclaim its constitutional duty to declare war. We urge Texas Senators John Corny and Ted Cruz to honor the letter and spirit of the WPR and bring a desperately needed end to the suffering of innocent Yemeni citizens.


A Call to Action from the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL)

End Illegal U.S. War in Yemen
Support S.J. Res. 54
By Kate Gould, February 23, 2018

Without congressional approval, the U.S. has militarily supported the Saudi-led war in Yemen, facilitating the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Bipartisan legislation introduced by Senators Bernie Sanders (VT), Mike Lee (UT), and Chris Murphy (CT) would end this illegal U.S. war in Yemen.

Please Call Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz: 855-686-6927- Senate might vote as soon as Monday March 12!

• Please cosponsor and speak out in support of the Sanders-Lee legislation (S.J. Res. 54) on Yemen, which would end unauthorized U.S. military involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

• By providing mid-air refueling for Saudi and UAE bombers and weapons, intelligence, and logistical support for the Saudi-led coalition, the U.S. is complicit in violations of international law and in creating the world’s largest humanitarian crisis.

• This legislation is required to get a floor vote in the coming weeks because Congress has never authorized U.S. military involvement in Yemen and this legislation invokes the War Powers Resolution.

• Every additional vote sends the message to Saudi Arabia that the killing of Yemeni civilians must end. We have the chance to help save millions of people from starvation as a result of this devastating war.
