Stand up for diplomacy with Iran

(Update: The letter has now closed. Click here to see which Members of Congress signed the letter in support of diplomacy.)

It’s time to go on offense.

A group of Representatives are circulating a letter that states opposition to any new sanctions while talks are ongoing. Sending a strong, proactive signal now can blunt the impact of any new bad legislation.

Tell your Representative to sign the letter today. Call by using this special 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 Member’s office.

NOTE: If the aide who answers the phone is unfamiliar with the Give Diplomacy a Chance letter or needs more information, please tell him or her to contact the office of Representative David Price.

SCRIPT: “Hi my name is [YOUR NAME], and I’m a constituent who lives in [YOUR CITY].

“President Obama has asked for, and deserves, the time and the political space necessary to reach a reasonable diplomatic agreement with Iran. But some Members of Congress are relentlessly trying to undermine diplomacy.

“We must not start another war. Diplomacy offers the best chance to peacefully resolve our differences with Iran.

“That is why I am calling to tell the Congressperson to co-sign the Give Diplomacy a Chance sign-on letter today.

“I hope [REPRESENTATIVE X] signs onto the letter before Friday. And if s/he does not do so, I would like a written explanation about why s/he does not think it necessary to support President Obama’s pursuit of diplomacy when the alternative is almost certainly another war.”
