Rep. Keith Ellison (MN), Rep. Walter Jones (NC), and 35 of their colleagues sent a letter to President Obama supporting robust, sustained diplomacy with Iran. This important letter urges the administration to fully utilize diplomacy to resolve the crisis over Iran’s nuclear program and prevent another costly war in the Middle East.

As early as this week, the Senate may be voting on S.Res. 380, a dangerous bill introduced by Senators Lieberman, Casey and Graham designed to curtail peaceful options for resolving the Iranian conflict.
This bill is being co-sponsored by 44 Senators and that list could grow. If passed, this bill implicitly calls for a military attack on Iran when Iran reaches a “nuclear capability.” At that stage diplomacy will be off the table.

Call your Senators today ! Use toll-free number provided by the Friends Committee on National Legislation: 855-NO-WAR (855–686-6927). Tell them constituents do not want another war. Urge them to vote “NO” when the bill comes to the floor. If they are already co-sponsors urge them to rescind their support.
