** Breaking News **
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke of Brooklyn will announce today that she is supporting diplomacy and peace with Iran by backing the President and the Iran deal. Please call the member’s office in Washington, (202) 225-6231, to thank her and to “have her back” as the opponents of the deal are sure to launch a vitriolic attack on her as they have on Rep. Nadler.

Thank you, Representative Yvette Clarke, for standing up and speaking out for peace. You did the right thing!

THANK YOU nadler and clarke

Just A Few Weeks To Stop A War…Join Us!

Aug 20, 2015

If you agree that this is a critical moment where peace hangs in the balance, then please come out to the events listed below. The purpose is to support diplomacy and peace with Iran and counter the poisonous and heavily-financed campaign of opponents to the Iran nuclear agreement. If this agreement is overturned by Congress, peace will be endangered and a new disastrous Middle East war will be very much closer.

Your Calls Really Count!
Call Congress Now!
Support Diplomacy NOT another war!

August 15, 2015:
Senator Schumer has come out OPPOSING the Iran agreement.  This is outrageous!
Senator Gillibrand has come out in SUPPORT.  We need to THANK Sen, Gillibrand, who is being pressured to change her position.
Close to $40 million is being spent by the opposition to overturn this historic agreement, setting us down a path which could too easily lead to war.

Additionally, thus far NONE of our Brooklyn representatives has taken a public stand.
Our calls are important. The vote of each representative who supports the agreement will be crucial!

Brooklyn To Congress:
“Support Peace & Diplomacy!
We Don’t Want Another War!”

Aug 1, 2015

Continuing their campaign to build support among their Brooklyn neighbors, BFP volunteers were out in front of the Central Library today. Flyers were handed out and postcards to Congress demanding support for the agreement on Iran’s  nuclear programs were collected. So far, Brooklyn For Peace has collected over 1,700 postcards from Brooklyn residents reflecting the widespread support for diplomacy and against a third Middle East war.

At times, there were so many people wanting to sign postcards that they had to wait on line. It was a sweltering day so that was a good measure of people’s commitment. Impressive! Congress … are you listening?

Our campaign will continue in the weeks ahead. Want to join us? Write to pej@brooklynpeace.org and we’ll send you details of our next mobilization.

Brooklyn For Peace has been out on the street corners of our Brooklyn neighborhoods, educating on the issue and supporting diplomacy with Iran vs. another Middle East war. Sentiment has been overwhelmingly in favor of the agreement with Iran and we’ve collected close to 1,700 postcards to Congress – Senators and Reps urging them to stand up for peace and diplomacy.
