With the U.S. military already fueling Saudi jets in Yemen, the White House is considering an escalation, from further intelligence sharing to possible direct US military intervention in the Yemen war. Congress can stop the U.S. from fueling the bloodshed in Yemen.
Deadline: Friday. That's when the government will shut down, unless Congress reaches a deal on federal spending. Negotiations are tense and ongoing, but the message your members of Congress needs to hear is simple: Don't pour more money into our country's militarized approach to foreign and domestic policies.
Congress is in-district from April 7-24, and they'll be listening closely for your perspective on the recent attacks on Syria. Dropping by their office or going to a town hall is one of the best ways to make your voice heard.
More bombs won't end the crisis in Syria. After more than six years of war, with millions displaced and a death toll of nearly half a million people, it's clear that there is no military solution to this crisis.
