Click here now to send an email to your Representative and two Senators reading:

As your constituent, I will urge my neighbors to oppose you if you go along with President Trump's efforts to decertify or otherwise sabotage the Iran deal. Please work to keep the deal intact instead of punishing Iran for adherence to its part of the bargain and moving the U.S. toward further violation of its commitment to sanctions relief. I want to see the U.S. government deal honestly with the world. I want no more cruel sanctions and no more threats of war. I'll be watching your statements and actions on this issue.


Congress is not entirely on board with Trump's effort to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by ending this successful agreement. But some in Congress are eager to keep the deal formally in place while violating it with more sanctions -- "justified" not by alleged violations of the deal but by other accusations. We need to make clear to Congress that we not only want the nuclear agreement kept in place, but we want no more sanctions and no war.

Sanctions harm innocent people, counter-productively empower more hostile leaders, and can be used, as in Iraq, to weaken a nation in preparation for attacking it militarily.

Two years ago public pressure in the United States helped create the nuclear agreement as a preferable alternative to what some of those in Congress were threatening instead: war.

As in North Korea, so in Iran: negotiated agreements and adherence to them remain highly preferable to war.
