Important Victory on Yemen - Let's Keep Up the Pressure!

By Kate Gould, November 12, 2018

Grassroots pressure is working! The Trump administration has recently announced that it will be ending mid-air refueling support for the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen.

Urge your senators to cement this victory by co-sponsoring and voting for S.J.Res. 54, the Sanders-Lee-Murphy legislation that would end all U.S. participation in the Yemen war as a matter of law, rather than on the whims of a president.

In March, S.J. Res. 54 was narrowly defeated in a 44-55 vote—failing by just seven votes. It’s time for the Senate to finally pass this legislation and end illegal U.S. participation in the war in Yemen once and for all.

For more information, check out our press release highlighting this victory and urging Congress to lock it into place.
