Please join with our friends at World Beyond War in telling Congress to block all weapons sales to Saudi Arabia.

Millions of people in Yemen are on the edge of starvation. Cholera is spreading. Bitter and violent resentment of those responsible, the Saudi and U.S. governments, is boiling up.
Yet Donald Trump proposes to go right on selling Saudi Arabia the weapons with which to continue the war that has created and is maintaining the crisis.
We can stop this. You can help by clicking here.
When we have a chance to alleviate great suffering, we must act on it immediately.
We have that chance.
U.S. Congress Members and Senators are now home for a week, where they should hear from their constituents in person. In June they will have to vote one way or the other on whether to go on selling war weapons to Saudi Arabia. We will deliver this petition to them.
Please sign it.
Please also phone your Representative and your two Senators at (202) 224-3121.
After signing the petition, please use the tools on the next webpage to share it with your friends.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
