The U.S. House of Representatives (in February and again in April, 2019) and the Senate (in December 2018 and March 2019) have each voted twice with strong bipartisan majorities to end the war on Yemen (vetoed by then-President Trump in April 2019).

The Democratic Party Platform of 2020 commits to ending the war on Yemen.

President Biden's nominees each say they are ending the war on Yemen.

But Congress has yet to act since the veto threat disappeared along with Trump. And every day that the war goes unended means more horrific death and suffering.

Click here to email your Representative and Senators to demand that they immediately introduce legislation under the War Powers Resolution to end U.S. participation in the war, directly or indirectly, and end all provision of U.S. weapons to participants in the war.

Yemen today remains the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the United Nations. Over 4 million people have been displaced because of the war, and 80% of the population, including 12.2 million children, are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. To add to the already dire situation, Yemen has one of the worst Covid-19 death rates in the world – it kills 1 in 4 people who test positive.

This humanitarian crisis is a direct result of the Western-backed, Saudi-led war and indiscriminate bombing campaign that has raged against Yemen since March 2015, as well as an air, land and sea blockade which prevents desperately-needed goods and aid from reaching the people of Yemen.

UN agencies and humanitarian organizations have repeatedly documented that there is no military solution possible in the current conflict in Yemen. The only thing the constant supply of arms to Yemen does is prolong hostilities, which increases suffering and numbers of the dead.

Congress needs to re-introduce the War Powers Resolution under the Biden administration.

Congress needs to permanently end weapons shipments to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Take action: Urge your Congress members to immediately end U.S. involvement in the war in Yemen!

The next step after convicting Trump is barring him from ever again holding public office. This is done by a simple majority vote in the Senate following a conviction. The next three steps after that are criminal prosecution for a long list of offenses, conviction in court, and sentencing.

Let's take this one step at a time. In the words of Senator Bernie Sanders, "The House of Representatives has done its job and impeached Donald Trump on a bipartisan basis. The Senate must now carry out its constitutional duty and convict Trump to ensure that neither he, nor any other president, can subvert our democracy again."

That's right! Tell your Senators here.
