One-year anniversary of Russia’s illegal invasion and occupation in Ukraine. Pick Up the Phone!
Friday 2/24 marks the one-year anniversary of Russia’s illegal invasion and occupation in Ukraine. Please join Peace Action in a National Call-In to our Congressional representatives, urging them to speak out to for vigorous diplomatic efforts for a cease-fire and negotiations.
Ultimately, there is no military solution to such an intractable and complex global crisis. The longer the conflict goes on, the more bloodshed there will be. At the same time, the United Nations is warning of years of global hardship that include a refugee crisis, and severe disruptions to trade, food security, and human development. The UN has called for urgent action to address this crisis, warning of a looming catastrophe that could bring global destabilization, starvation, and mass migration on an unprecedented scale
Make this call today! Dial the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your representative’s office.
Here’s what you can say: “I’m calling to urge you to support and speak out for crucial diplomatic efforts to help end the war in Ukraine. These steps include calling for vigorous diplomatic efforts in support of a negotiated settlement and ceasefire in Ukraine; engaging in direct talks with Russia, exploring prospects for a new European security arrangement acceptable to all parties that will allow for a sovereign and independent Ukraine; and, in coordination with Ukraine, seeking a rapid end to the conflict.”
