Today’s Action: New House, New Vote — End U.S. Terror in Yemen

Last month, 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 old 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.

Now, we have a new House, full of the progressive voices we fought so hard to place in power, but after the Democrats failed to stand united on the last vote, we can’t take anything for granted. The entire Congress must now turn their attention to stopping America’s contributions to genocide.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Member of the House of Representatives. If your representative is:

A re-elected Republican, tell them you are holding them responsible for the lives of 13 million Yemenis who cannot wait any longer — but now they have a chance to fix their previous vote.

A newly-elected Republican, tell them you expect them to break party lines if they want to avoid blood on their hands.

A re-elected Democrat (except the five below), thank them for their vote last month, and tell them you expect them to prioritize ending US involvement in Yemen immediately.

A newly-elected Democrat, welcome them to the House and tell them to sponsor or co-sponsor legislation to end US involvement in Yemen

Democrat Jim Costa (CA), Al Lawson (FL), Collin Peterson (MN), Dutch Ruppersberger (MD), or David Scott (GA), tell them you’re watching their vote closely. They have a second chance…and you’ll expect them on the right side of history this time, or replace them in 2020.
