Please email or call your members of Congress today to let them know that you oppose military action against Iran.
Background: The U.S. assassination of a top Iranian military commander on January 3, followed by Iranian strikes on U.S. military bases in Iraq, moved the two countries perilously close to war. While the risk of immediate war has eased somewhat, tensions between the countries remain high. This has increased instability in the entire region and puts countless lives at risk.
On January 9 the House passed a non-binding resolution to limit the ability of the president to carry out military action against Iran. On January 30 the House voted to repeal the 2002 military authorization against Iraq, as well as a measure to limit funds for military action against Iran. On February 13 the Senate passed a war powers resolution on Iran, which the House is now expected to take up. Urge your House member to support it.
Faith reflection: As followers of the Prince of Peace, we are guided by the vision of a time when “nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more” (Isaiah 2:4).
Action: Send an email to your members of Congress or give them a call at 202-224-3121, letting them know that you oppose military action against Iran. Please take action today and share this with a friend!
