The United States, Iran and five other world powers announced a historic deal to dramatically curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for easing international sanctions on Iran.
The U.S. public has said it would support a deal like this, but billionaires who fund election campaigns and their lobby groups are pushing hard against it.
We have strength in numbers. Click here to tell Congress to defend the deal.
This is the final showdown to stop Republicans (and some Democrats) from starting a war with Iran.
It's a great deal for the United States, but warmongers are already trying to sabotage the deal and put us back on the path to confrontation and war with Iran. If they get the war they want, they'll claim it was a "last resort."
Republicans won’t get the war they want unless Democrats help them. We need to speak out right now and urge Democrats and Republicans to support diplomacy.
Click here to tell Congress: Don't sabotage the Iran deal and start a war.
The truth is, many Congress members don't want diplomacy to work. They want another costly war like the Republican House and Democratic Senate voted to authorize in Iraq in 2002.
President Obama will veto any legislation that would blow up this deal. If we can get enough Congress members on record in support of the deal to sustain President Obama’s veto, we can beat back any efforts to blow up diplomacy.
Please take action right now to urge your representative and senators to publicly back the deal and pledge to oppose any efforts to undermine it.
After signing the petition, please forward this message to your friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
