Thank You Brooklyn Reps!
For Supporting Peace & Diplomacy With Iran!

Sep 1, 2015

Brooklyn is in the house! And peace is winning the day. Four of six of our Brooklyn House members have declared their support for the Iran deal, supporting peace and diplomacy with Iran and not another war!

Big thanks go to Yvette Clarke, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerrold Nadler and Nydia Velazquez who listened to their constituents and then stood up and spoke out.

Please call Clarke, Jeffries, Nadler and Velazquez and tell them  “thank you”   for doing the right thing.
Let them know you’ll have their back when opponents of the deal attack them for taking a position in favor of peace.

Can You Spare An Hour

Please join other Brooklyn residents in front of Congressional offices to urge our Representatives to stand up and speak out for peace and diplomacy with Iran ... and NOT another war!

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!
