Success for Yemen in the Senate!
With your help, the Senate just took a major step forward to advance peace in Yemen.
Yesterday, it passed S.J. Res. 7 to end illegal U.S. military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen by a vote of 54-46.
Years of war have caused widespread hunger and created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. The Saudi-led coalition, supported by our government, caused the majority of the civilian casualties. Through this vote, the Senate told the Trump administration that it is time for U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition to end.
Now, the legislation will go back to the House for a final vote. If the bill successfully passes, it will be the first time legislation enforcing the 1973 War Powers Act will land on the president’s desk since the Vietnam War era.
This victory was made possible by years of grassroots advocacy. We hope you will help us cross the finish line.
