Breaking: Vote Friday

Contact your representative today and ask them to vote against an open-ended military presence in Iraq. 

You can stop another Iraq war.


Dear Lt Col David Gapp
A vote on U.S. intervention in the civil war in Iraq is scheduled for Friday. 
Already over 700 U.S. troops have been sent to Iraq. Media reports say that these special forces could provide on-the-ground intelligence needed to call in airstrikes. 
As you know, this is how a wider war starts. Can you contact your representative today and prevent U.S. military intervention in Iraq from escalating? 
The President has pledged not to have a large ground force in Iraq, but he's exploring other military options. He argued that Congressional approval is not necessary for such action.
The Pentagon has said it was considering airstrikes "to break the momentum" of ISIS.
The good news is that Reps. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Jim McGovern (D-MA), and Walter Jones (R-NC) have introduced pro-peace legislation on Iraq. Their H. Con. Res. 105 forces a debate and vote on escalating military intervention in Iraq. 
Please contact your representative today and ask them to support H. Con. Res. 105.
What is happening in Iraq today is truly tragic. But the very nature of the conflict means that airstrikes can inflame sectarianism and hurt civilians, causing further tragedy. Recep Erdogan, Prime Minister of Turkey – a country right next to the fighting – cautioned, "ISIS elements are mixed with civilians, so such an operation might cause serious casualties."
Contact your member of Congress today and ask them to stop U.S. escalation in Iraq. The U.S. should use diplomaticy and humanitarian aid to help the people of the region.
Thank you for all you do for peace,
Jon Rainwater
Executive Director
