End the War In Yemen: Call Your Senators Today
Currently, US involvement in Yemen is under the authority of the Trump Administration without the consent or oversight of Congress. The US is not at war with Yemen but aiding Saudi Arabia with supplies, personnel, and a blockade that starves 130 children to death per day.
S.J.Res54 will end U.S. support in the Saudi Arabian led war in Yemen, crucial to ending this humanitarian disaster for up to 14 million men, women and children. The bill is before the full senate now.
Step one: Do not be intimidated by the telephone. Calling is more effective than emails or letters.
Step two: Find your individual senators’contact information by visiting here (or call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.)
Step three: When someone answers the phone, “Good morning, I’m [your name.] I am calling to urge [Senator’s name] to support S.J.Res 54, to keep us out of further involvement in Yemen.” Keep the call short. Be polite.
Call now: The vote is imminent.
