Congress Must Act to prevent War Iran

Plan a drop-by visit.

By Diana Ohlbaum, June 28, 2019


Each day, it seems, the United States moves closer to war with Iran. Congress has the power to stop this, and they could face a vote as soon as July 8 on whether to prevent another devastating war in the Middle East.

Your legislators are home this week for the Independence Day recess and it’s important that they hear from you as they are deciding how they will vote. Follow these three steps to take action.

Three Steps to Dropping by a Congressional Office

1. Print out a one-pager

Download a one-pager calling on your Representative to take action to prevent war with Iran.

2. Find your closest congressional offices.

Look up your elected officials and where their local congressional offices are located.

3. Pay them a visit!

No need to make an appointment -- just stop by during business hours. Here's a sample script you can use once you get there:

Hi, my name is __, and I'm a constituent from __.

Could you pass this document along to the right staff member for me and help me set up a meeting where I can to discuss this issue with them?

Let me know how your visit goes!
