After years of tough negotiations, the US, our allies, and Iran have reached a historic, comprehensive deal to verifiably cut off Iran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon without resorting to war! This is the single greatest foreign policy win for progressives in recent memory! But we can’t celebrate just yet…
Now comes the hard part: defending the deal. Those who dragged us to war in Iraq are fighting hard to kill this strong deal and put us back on the path to war with Iran. We cannot let them win. That’s why we’re partnering with MoveOn.org, CREDO, and others on a new campaign to lift up progressive voices in support of the deal.
Make no mistake, this is a good deal. It will block Iran’s pathways to nuclear weapons, provide for rigorous and unprecedented inspections, and eliminate a major security threat without resorting to war.
Congress will now have two months to review this deal, and already some hawks are declaring they will do everything they can to kill the deal. We have already seen some of Washington’s most powerful special interests unleash multimillion dollar campaigns to join anti-diplomacy Members of Congress in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
But we can stop them. Your Members of Congress need to hear from you. We know, we have asked you to do this before. Since negotiations began, you have helped generate nearly 3 million petition signatures, emails, and phone calls to Congress support of diplomacy with Iran – and, up until now, Congress has listened to us and supported diplomacy.
But now we need you one more time to help us seal the deal and prevent a war with Iran.
