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! Continue reading →
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 email@example.com 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.
BFP Has Been Waging Peace By Urging Diplomacy, Not War, With Iran.
Jul 5, 2015
Over the last few months Brooklyn For Peace volunteers, led by the group’s Peace And Economic Justice Committee (PEJ) have been out in the streets urging success for the diplomatic agreement that the Obama administration, along with its five partners, have been negotiating with Iran over that country’s nuclear programs. The peace movement has for years been advocating the use of discussion to settle disputes rather than resorting to military force and war which had been the policy of Bush and Cheney and their Neo-Con allies.
The United States and five other countries are about to conclude an agreement with Iran that will settle differences over that nation’s nuclear programs. The agreement will go a long way toward normalizing relations with Iran and establish a regimen on inspection that will block Iran’s pathway to a nuclear weapon, and eliminate a possible major security threat without resorting to war. (It should be noted that even U.S. intelligence agencies have never made the claim that Iran does have or intends to develop a nuclear weapons program.) During the next few weeks, Members of Congress will decide where they stand on the final Iran deal. It’s important for Congress to hear strong, pro-diplomacy statements from the people they represent.
