Tell Your Senators: Don’t Wreck Diplomacy with Iran! 202-224-3121

Last week, 47 Republicans Senators took the shocking step of sending an “open letter” to Iranian leaders aimed at blowing up the nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers including the United States.*

This follows closely on House Speaker Boehner’s unprecedented invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to the Congress in opposition to the diplomatic initiative of a United States President.

And as has been apparent for months, it’s not just Republicans who are out to prevent the Iran agreement. Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have been all too active in placing obstacles in the way of peace.  At the present time, two bills are pending in the Senate, clearly designed to prevent an agreement with Iran:

S. 615 Corker-Graham Iran Bill https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/615

S. 269 Kirk- Menendez Sanctions Bill https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/269

Call your Senators. You have probably made these calls before, but it is more important then ever that constituents speak up now. And don’t hesitate to call Republicans. They need to hear how outraged constituents are about their unprecedented sabotage of a President’s foreign policy, as well as their appalling invitation to a foreign leader to challenge the national security policy of the United States, when it promotes peace instead of endless war.

Call your Senators

Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121

Let them know: 

  • You support the President’s diplomacy with Iran

  • You do not believe US foreign policy should be subordinated to the preferences of a right-wing Israeli government

  • You oppose legislation that seeks to undermine the prospects for much awaited nuclear agreement with Iran (S.615 and S.269)

  • You strongly support  a nuclear weapons–free Middle East, which includes Israel as well as Iran

Ask the person, who answers the phone, where the Senator stands. And let us know of any results:
