Action Alert:

End America's Murderous Role in Yemen!

We take inspiration from the recent actions of average Americans who spoke truth to power in Washington during the Kavanaugh hearings!

But while we have all been glued to the drama unfolding in the nation's capital, America has been supporting war crimes in Yemen.

For three years Saudi warplanes, with U.S. military help, have carried out a relentless campaign bombing civilians, destroying infrastructure and causing starvation - all war crimes. On Aug. 9th the Saudis bombed a school bus killing 40 kids ages 6-13. A comprehensive air, sea and land blockade by the Saudi led coalition has placed 8 million Yemenis one step away from starvation while 1 million suffer due to a cholera outbreak because of contaminated drinking water. The UN has declared Yemen the worst humanitarian disaster in the world.

Congress must immediately act to rein in U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Some of our allies in Congress are reviving the effort to invoke the War Powers Act for Congress to vote on whether the U.S. is authorized to continue its support for the war in Yemen.

In the House, Representatives Ro Khanna (D-CA), Mark Pocan (D-WI), and Adam Smith (D-WA) are leading the charge and Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) are echoing this charge in the Senate.

We would like you to call your representatives today and ask them to cosponsor and support:H.Con.Res 138, the War Powers Resolution to end the U.S. role in the war in Yemen.

Here's all you need to do:

1) Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

2) Follow instructions to reach your Representative in the House of Representatives, and then say (in your own words to the extent possible):

3) My name is ______________, and I'm a constituent from [YOUR CITY]. I'm calling to urge Representative ____________ to cosponsor H.Con.Res 138, the War Powers Resolution on the U.S. role in the war in Yemen. It is time for Congress to take back its constitutional power in authorizing U.S. wars. Please, co-sponsor the War Powers Resolution to end the U.S. role in the war in Yemen.
