Call to Action: End War in Yemen!
Peace Action calling for support of H.Con.Res.138
From Peace Action’s newsletter:
The War Powers Resolution [we] told you about last week was just introduced in the House. I need you to call your representatives today and ask them to cosponsor and support H.Con.Res 138, the War Powers Resolution on the U.S. role in the war in Yemen. Here’s all you need to do:
1) Call the Capitol Switchboard today 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 authority in authorizing U.S. wars. Please, co-sponsor the War Powers Resolution to end the U.S. role in the war in Yemen.
Thanks for all you’ve done to help end the suffering in Yemen.
Paul Kawika Martin
Senior Director, Policy and Political Affairs
