It’s urgent that your senators and representative in Congress hear directly from you about the U.S. missile attack on Syria. As a constituent, you can quickly send a message to all three of them by clicking here.
The missile attack puts the United States and Russia -- the world’s two nuclear superpowers -- on a collision course while threatening to make the Syrian conflict even more deadly. Yet many members of Congress have been praising the attack.
In a democracy, when the people lead, the leaders can be compelled to follow. But that can only happen if we assert ourselves.
Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. denounced what he called “the madness of militarism.” Today, that madness is all too prevalent. Please click here to tell your senators and representative that you favor a complete cutoff of funding for U.S. military actions in Syria.
The elected officials who are supposed to represent you in Congress must hear from you.
