Our pressure is working.
Last week, many people thought war with Syria was inevitable—until the clamor you helped raise forced the president to put on the brakes.
President Obama’s dramatic decision to take the Syria war authorization vote to Congress gives you and me a voice — IF we act quickly. Congress is going to vote on this next week, and they need to hear from us.
Call your representative now at 202-224-3121 and urge him or her to vote NO on the authorization to use force in Syria. Then, click here to report your call. If you don’t know who your representative is, click here.
No one has made a compelling case that these strikes will change the course of Syria’s brutal war or make Syrians or American safer. But many in the military are concerned that even limited strikes could provoke a wider war. (Click here for helpful talking points on why we should say no to military action in Syria.) There is opposition in Congress, but we need the power of the people to push it over the edge.
