Take Action

Action Alert End U.S. Support for Deadly Yemen War 

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.

Action Alert A More Peaceful Budget 

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.

Action Alert Too Much for War. Not Enough for Peace 

Our country has a bad habit of excessive military spending, and we’re all paying for it — through our taxes and through foreign policy that relies too heavily on military options.

Action Alert Meet Face-to-Face to Stop Escalating War in Syria 

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.

Action Alert Stop U.S. from Making Syria War Even Worse 

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.

Tips for Effective Action

  1. Advocacy Resource Write Effective Emails to Congress 

    Do emails to Congress work? While a single email won't often change a policymaker's position, email is a critical part of strategic advocacy for the policies you care about.

  2. Advocacy Resource Publish Letters to the Editor 

    Publishing letters to the editor and op-eds is a great way to get the attention of your members of Congress. But first, you need to write a piece that tells your story – not just the facts.
