In the past six weeks, America has flown nearly 3,000 missions, deployed more than 1,500 troops, and launched more than 150 airstrikes in Iraq. Just last week, the President announced that our latest war in the Middle East will be ramping up, with increased airstrikes in Iraq and soon also in Syria. And, as early as today, Congress is going to vote on a controversial plan to send arms to Syrian rebels, pouring fuel on the fire of the Syrian civil war.
Your Members of Congress need to hear from you before they support another endless war in the Middle East!
Call Congress using this toll-free* number: 1-855-68 NO WAR (1-855-686-6927).
This number will connect you with the Capitol Switchboard operator, and you should ask to be connected to your Representative’s office. Introduce yourself as a constituent and explain that you’re opposed to the use of military force against ISIS and would like your legislator to promote alternative options to deal with ISIS. Once you’re done, call back and ask to be connected to each of your Senators’ offices.
“Hi I’m ______ and I’m a constituent calling from ______. I’m calling to ask my legislator to vote against authorizing the use of military force against ISIS. Instead of rushing back to war, the U.S. should pursue alternative options, such as cutting off ISIS’s oil sales and stopping the flow of weapons to the region. Thank you!”
