Action Network Email A vote we CAN WIN!


Our tax dollars are triggering the worst humanitarian crisis on the globe — and we have a chance to stop it. For years, the U.S. has been quietly supporting Saudi Arabia's brutal campaign driving more than 8 million Yemenis to the brink of famine. Our government gives Saudi Arabia bombs and planes. Our troops even deliver fuel to Saudi jets in midair while they conduct bombings.

Now Vermont progressive Senator Bernie Sanders and constitutional conservative Senator Mike Lee of Utah have introduced a resolution to cut off U.S. support for this illegal war. Because Bernie's resolution declares that the war in Yemen violates the Constitution, it's guaranteed a vote on the Senate floor within days. That's why UFPJ has joined a massive coalition of progressive partners to win this vote. But we need you to get your Senators on board. Click here to send them your message. NEXT: follow-up with a phone call—see the sample call script below.

This is a vote we MUST win!

Thank you for all you do!

The UFPJ Coordinating Committee

Sample Call Script:

Hello,

I am a constituent of Senator _______________ and I am calling to ask [him/her] to support S.J.Res. 54 to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

Over eight million people are facing famine as the result of my tax dollars supporting the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's civil war. S.J.Res.54 is a bipartisan, privileged resolution invoking the War Powers Resolution. It requires a vote on ending U.S. military support for this war.

As your constituent, I urge you to cosponsor and vote YES on the Sanders-Lee resolution to ensure that our nation stops causing suffering in a country already devastated by conflict, cholera, and famine.

Thank you.
