Urgent: Your Senators Need to Hear From You Before They Vote on Yemen

By Kate Gould, March 4, 2019

The people of Yemen have suffered years of a war that has triggered widespread famine and disease—resulting in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

FCNL advocates have been raising the alarm for more than three years, alerting members of Congress to the atrocities being committed by the Saudi-led coalition with U.S. military and intelligence support.

Because of persistent pressure from advocates like you, the House recently voted against U.S. military involvement in this conflict. The Senate is set to vote on similar legislation in the coming days.

Passage is not assured in the Senate. We need your help. Call your senators today!
