Right now, our diplomats and P5+1 allies are in Vienna working tirelessly to reach a verifiable deal to keep Iran from getting nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, here at home, two prominent hawks in Congress are gathering forces to tie our negotiators’ hands and put undue strain on the already difficult talks.
Please take two minutes to call your Senator and say, “Give diplomacy a chance. Do NOT sign the Menendez-Graham letter.”
Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are circulating a letter in the Senate pushing for tough lines and zero compromises on the Iran deal. What’s more, they have the support of powerful lobbyists who are flooding the Hill asking Senators to sign the dangerous letter. That’s why it’s so important that your Senators hear from you! As nuclear non-proliferation expert Daryl Kimball explained, “The letter could be interpreted in ways that call for outcomes that are not in the cards and could be deal-killers.”
Senators are deciding whether or not to sign this dangerous letter TODAY, and so it’s imperative that you call your Senators NOW!
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 one of your Senator’s offices. Introduce yourself as a constituent, and then explain that you urge them to NOT sign the Menendez-Graham letter on Iran. Once you’re done, call the number again to connect with your other Senator.
“Hi I’m ______ and I’m a constituent calling from ______. I’m calling to ask Senator_____ to support diplomacy with Iran by NOT signing the Menendez-Graham letter. This dangerous letter would tie our negotiators’ hands and make it harder to reach a realistic agreement with Iran. Thank you!”
