Urge Your Senators to Vote for S.J.Res.54
By supporting this legislation, your senators can invoke the War Powers Act to help end US involvement in the devastation of YemenWrite to Congress
During the month of March, the Senate is expected to vote on withdrawing U.S. armed forces from the Saudi-led war in Yemen. March marks the third anniversary of this devastating war, which has plunged Yemen into the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. As the Senate prepares to vote, millions of lives hang in the balance. Nowhere in the world does Washington have more leverage to stop millions of people from starvation than in Yemen, where more than 8 million people are on the verge of starving to death.
At every major juncture, the war has been enabled by Washington. U.S. pilots are refeuling U.S.-made bombers as they drop U.S.-made bombs on Yemeni men, women, and children, and the the hospitals, water sanitation facilities and other civilian infrastructure that they depend on. As the coalition continues to bomb Yemeni hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods, it is also blocking food, fuel, and other essential imports from getting into Yemen.
Under this legislation, no longer would U.S. pilots serve as gas station attendants in the sky to refuel Saudi and UAE bombers that rein down terror on Yemeni men, women, and children.
