Promote Peaceful U.S. Policy towards Yemen
Constituent voices are needed now to stop the U.S. from fueling war in Yemen. Your voice has the power to move Congress to end U.S. complicity in this war. Take action!
The U.S. is literally fueling the bombing of civilians in Yemen.
Pressure from constituents can help catalyze an end to the U.S. role in enabling the violence.
The U.S. is providing refueling for the Saudi jet bombers that have rained down bombs on Yemeni markets, schools, factories, residential neighborhoods, and other civilian areas. The Saudi-led coalition bombed four Doctors without Borders hospitals in a single year.
The violence has ravaged Yemeni society, with 7.6 million Yemenis suffering from malnutrition and 3 million suffering displacement. Despite the clear connection between U.S. arms to Saudi Arabia and Yemeni civilian suffering, the U.S. continues to sell billions of dollars of munitions to Saudi Arabia.
But congressional dissent of U.S. support for the Saudi military is growing.
On September 21, 27 Senators voted to block a $1.15 billion weapons deal to Saudi Arabia, in the midst of the U.S. backed, Saudi-led coalition’s indiscriminate attacks on Yemeni schools, hospitals, markets, and other civilian areas. Check how your Senator voted.
Take Action: Respond to your Senator's Vote
Respond to your senators’ votes, thanking them if they supported the measure to block weapons from Saudi Arabia, and expressing your disappointment if they voted against it.
Take Action: Urge Lawmakers to cosponsor new legislation
Please call your Senators and Representatives in Washington and tell them to support: S.J. Resolution 32 (in the Senate) and H.J. Resolution 90 (in the House), that would end U.S. bomb transfers to Saudi Arabia until the President certifies that Saudi Arabia has stopped its indiscriminate killing of civilians and facilitated humanitarian aid access to all parts of Yemen.
