Speak Out For Diplomacy

Urge Your Members of Congress to Take War Off the Table

Dear Friends,The leaders of North and South Korea will meet on April 27 in a historic summit that should lead to further steps toward peace and reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula. South Korean President Moon Jae-in has been superbly effective in his diplomatic surge, and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has responded positively to Moon’s initiatives. It is clear that Koreans, North and South, as well as war-weary Americans, fervently desire peace.

To bolster the very positive recent developments, we need more Members of Congress to speak out in favor of Korean diplomacy. With a summit meeting between President Trump and Kim expected this spring, Representatives and Senators need to stand firmly for serious diplomacy, as there is no military solution to the concerns raised by North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

 

Please Call your members of Congress today via the Congressional switchboard number (202) 224-3121 and tell them to:  

  • Speak out for diplomacy. Take war off the table.
  • Co-sponsor the No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act of 2017 which would prevent the President from launching a pre-emptive attack on North Korea.  
In the Senate it’s S.2016, sponsored by Senator Ed Markey; co-sponsored by Senators Warren, Merkley and Sanders.In the House, it’s HR 4837, sponsored by Representative Ro Khanna, and 69 co-sponsors. You can see the list here.

If your Senators or Reps are already co-sponsors of the above bills, please thank them and ask them to press the Trump Administration to continue to pursue diplomacy, not war.
