Today’s Action: Call out House members who voted to continue atrocities in Yemen

Last week, the Senate voted 56-41 to pass a resolution to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen, where the worst humanitarian crisis of our generation is well underway. 50,000 Yemenis have already been killed and 13 million more are starving to death, but Trump has continued his praise AND weapons supply for the Saudi Arabian regime responsible…possibly due to his own private business interests in Saudi Arabia.

But the House voted to maintain our bloodshed, with five Democrats breaking ranks to join Republicans. The actions of both Republicans and these five Democrats is inexcusable – and Democratic leadership in the House had a chance to push harder and opted not to.

On January 3rd, a new House will enter, full of the progressive voices we fought so hard to place in power. That House must be ready to end destructive business-as-usual politics…and some of them need a reminder from us before heading home for the holidays.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Member of the House of Representatives:

1. If Republican, tell them you are holding them responsible for the lives of 13 million Yemenis who cannot wait any longer

2a. If Democratic, thank them for their vote, but tell them you expect them to prioritize ending US involvement in Yemen in January

2b. If your Democratic representative is Jim Costa (CA), Al Lawson (FL), Collin Peterson (MN), Dutch Ruppersberger (MD), or David Scott (GA), tell them you’re watching their vote closely — and if they can’t do what’s right, then perhaps we can replace them with other Democrats who can.
