Deliver Report Card to Rep Hakeem Jeffries!

Although Jeffries is one of the most progressive members of Congress when it comes to domestic issues, on foreign policy issues he has been the opposite.On December 2nd, 2014, he voted FOR the $535 billion military budget also known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA.)  He was the only Democratic Brooklyn Congressperson to do so.  Also, he is the only Brooklyn Congressperson who has NOT been publicly supportive of Obama’s diplomatic efforts to reach an agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.

Jeffries will be delivering his State of the District Address on Thursday, January 29 at 6:30 pm at Long Island University (LIU)  (Paramount Theater, 1 University Plaza at Flatbush & DeKalb, downtown Brooklyn.) He has invited the community.

Please join Brooklyn For Peace and Fort Greene Peace at 5:45 pm to deliver his Report Card.
(E-mail us at bfp@brooklynpeace.org for exact meeting spot.)
Especially if you’re in Jeffries’ district, join us inside at the event to urge him to be a voice for peace and justice.
RSVP to Jeffries’ office is required.

100 Calls to Senator Gilllibrand Needed Quickly!!

100 Calls to Sen. Gillibrand Needed ASAP!!
Senate hardliners are determined to sabotage nuclear negotiations with Iran. Early this week Senators Kirk and Menendez  will introduce  legislation which imposes new sanctions on Iran, including tighter controls on its oil industry.
They will be pressing Senator Gillibrand to sign on as  an early co-sponsor. Senator Gillibrand has swung back and forth on this issue and is amenable to pressure.
Please call her office now:
Let her know you support diplomacy with Iran and do NOT want her to co-sponsor any legislation that would add additional sanctions now, as this will have the effect of killing the diplomatic process.
After you’ve called, please send an email to us: bfp@brooklynpeace.org so we can keep a count.Send Facebook post to your friends and ask them to call also.  It’s important!!
