Repeal the Authorization for the Use of Military Force
In 2019 Advocacy Teams are lobbying to end the endless wars. For nearly two decades, U.S. presidents have used two laws from 2001 and 2002 to justify sending the U.S. military to conduct operations at least 18 different countries. And that count doesn’t include covert lethal operations waged away from the public eye. As a first step, Congress should repeal the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for Use of Military Force that have been used by three presidents to justify endless wars.
Meeting face to face with your members of Congress is the single most effective way to persuade them to support an issue you care about. Use these resources to meet directly with your members of Congress.
Updates from Advocacy Teams
Working with the media is an effective way to advocate; members of Congress pay close attention to their local media -- especially when they're mentioned by name.
Numbers make a difference, and legislators will be more inclined to vote your way if they feel there is a groundswell of support behind your position. You can create that wave through community education.
As a member of the Advocacy Teams network, you are an extension of FCNL’s work both in Congress and at home. When each person follows these guidelines, it strengthens the recognition of your work and helps you create professional-looking material.
