Tell the Senate to end the war in Afghanistan!

The first American troops entered Afghanistan in October 2001. Thirteen years later, they are still there, and, if the Pentagon gets its way, they will be there for years to come. With no military solution to the challenges in Afghanistan, it’s long past time to bring our troops home.

Tell the Senate to finally end the war in Afghanistan!

Over the past 2 years, many of our men and women in uniform have come home from Afghanistan, and the President has promised to keep bringing them home in the months ahead. However, a debate is raging in Washington over how many troops will stay after the end of this year. So far the military has had a say – they want 10,000 to stay indefinitely – and the Afghans have weighed in, but one important group of people haven’t had their voices heard – the American people. Thankfully, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) is fighting to let us have our say by demanding that Congress vote on any future US mission in Afghanistan. The U.S. Congress – representing you and me – should have more input over the fate of American troops than the Afghan parliament.

Ask your Senators to cosponsor Senator Merkley’s resolution demanding a chance to say no to more war in Afghanistan!

The last time Congress voted to authorize sending troops to Afghanistan was nearly 13 years ago. Sen. Merkley’s common sense legislation would let Congress once again debate on whether or not American troops should be fighting and dying in Afghanistan. We need you to tell your Senator to help end the war in Afghanistan by cosponsoring S.Res.347.

Tell your Senators, it’s time to bring ALL our troops home from Afghanistan!
