Washington, DC – The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) hailed today’s historic Senate vote to advance legislation ending American participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen. It calls on the Senate to immediately vote on final passage, and for the House to also take up this legislation and end illegal military involvement in Yemen’s civil war once and for all.

Given the energy building against the war, if this legislation had come to a vote, it might well have passed.
