#TakeAction – June 17, 2019
Hi team! I hope you had a great weekend, especially the dads out there. Happy Fathers Day.
Here are TWO ways you can make a difference. #TakeAction.
🔶Attend the protest against Seattle City Club tomorrow
🔶Ask our MoC’s to stop Trump from starting a war w/Iran
1. *Seattle City Club: Jeh Johnson protest tomorrow*This community organization has invited the architect of the deportation machine to be their keynote speaker tomorrow. Let’s stand with the immigrant community. I’ll be on the ground organizing.. join us. 11AM in front of the Convention Center in Seattle. https://www.facebook.com/events/432847987291968/
2. Info to help your call re: *Stop Trump’s drumbeat for war w/Iran*
We’ve been seeing the news and it’s like a déjà vu, leading up to when W Bush led us to war with Iraq. Call all three of our MoC’s (Members of Congress) and ask them to stop this. Ask Rep Schrier to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 Ask Sen Cantwell and Sen Murray to co-sponsor S 1039 (More info in the comments)
Call Congresswoman Schrier and Senators Murray & Cantwell, ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 / S. 1039 to explicitly deny President Trump the authority he wants to start a new war with Iran.
Donald Trump and his war cabinet seem to be itching for a new war with Iran. First, the Trump administration violated the Iran nuclear deal. Then, they mounted an Iraq War-style campaign to prime the public. Now, they’re trying to provoke a reaction from Iran. For those who recall the lead-in to the Iraq War, this all probably feels pretty familiar. But history must not repeat itself. It’s essential that Congress use its powers to stop this march to war. Congress needs to hear from you today. Congress must deny Trump the authority to start a new war with Iran. Tell your members of Congress (MoCs) to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 / S. 1039 to explicitly deny him this authority!
