Your Member of Congress Could Help Prevent War with Iran
The U.S. and Iran are moving closer to war every day. As tensions escalate between our two nations, the risk grows of accidents and miscalculations that could tip us into another deadly conflict in the Middle East.
Reps. Ro Khanna (CA‐17) and Matt Gaetz (FL‐01) have proposed a bipartisan amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would ensure the president cannot take military action against Iran without congressional authorization – except in the event of a national emergency created by an attack on the United States. This amendment is expected to receive a vote next week.
Your Member of Congress needs to hear from you before the vote. Will you take two minutes to strengthen our democracy and advocate for peace?
As a Quaker organization, we oppose all war. As a matter of public policy, we believe Congress must debate and vote before our military undertakes lethal action or U.S. troops are put in harm’s way. I hope you will join me in calling on Congress to uphold the Constitution and prevent unauthorized war with Iran.
