BFP Urges Congress to Reject Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF)

Noting with alarm and dismay President Obama’s request for legislation Authorizing for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to legitimize the use of military force in the Middle East, Brooklyn For Peace calls on the elected officials who represent us in Wasnington to reject this request.
