NGOs urge Speaker Pelosi: Continue the fight against War with Iran


Last Updated on January 30, 2020.

WASHINGTON — Win Without War and seven other national organizations, representing Iranian American, veteran, faith, progressive foreign policy communities, and more, sent a letter today to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of House leadership praising the House’s passage of a war powers resolution on Iran, and urging the prompt passage of further legislation to block a potential war.

Specifically, the coalition called on the House to pass legislation to:

  • bar funding for unauthorized war;
  • clarify that Congress has not authorized war; and
  • repeal the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force.

The coalition also encouraged the House to continue to press the administration on its legal rationale for the assassination of General Soleimani.
