We Need Diplomacy, NOT a Military Buildup!
As the tensions over the US-NATO-Russia-Ukraine conflict continue, US policy grows more dangerous. The possibility of a “hot war” between the US and Russia, both armed with nuclear weapons, is very alarming. The time to speak out is now!
PICK UP THE PHONE! Congressional Switchboard: 202-224-3121
Call your Congressional Representative and Senators Schumer and Gillibrand! Ask them to vote NO on the “War With Russia” legislation (“Defending Ukraine Sovereignty Act (S.3488 or H.R. 6470) would send $500 million more in weapons to Ukraine. Sen. Schumer and Gillibrand are both co-sponsors. Ask them to remove their names. Tell them you oppose the Biden Administration’s militaristic responses to the crisis. The U.S. should stop sending weapons and troops to the region, and should engage in genuine diplomacy, including a halt to NATO expansion. There is no military solution!
Don’t know who represents you?
Email the White House! Tell President Biden we cannot risk a military confrontation between the United States and Russia, the world’s most heavily armed nuclear nations.
