Our Work

When crises break out in the Middle East, the U.S. too often turns to violence first. FCNL lobbies for nonviolent engagement in the Middle East to prevent, de-escalate and resolve longstanding conflicts. Political grievances contribute to instability and violence, so lasting peace in the region will require engagement with all stakeholders.

Press Release Senate Set to Vote in March on Illegal U.S. War in Yemen  

Action Would End U.S. Complicity in Largest Global Humanitarian Crisis

A bipartisan trio of Senators—Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Chris Murphy (D-CT)—has introduced legislation to end U.S. military involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen that has driven the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Because this war has never been authorized by Congress, the War Powers Resolution guarantees that this bill will get a vote on the Senate floor within weeks.

Legislative Ask End Illegal U.S. War in Yemen 

Support S.J. Res. 54

Without congressional approval, the U.S. has militarily supported the Saudi-led war in Yemen, facilitating the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Bipartisan legislation introduced by Senators Bernie Sanders (VT), Mike Lee (UT), and Chris Murphy (CT) would end this illegal U.S. war in Yemen, and we expect the Senate to vote on this bill during the month of March.
