Call-in: Urge your Rep. to Support the Iran Deal!

Today, thousands of activists across the country are participating in over 200 events outside the offices of their Senators and Representatives to show their support of the Iran deal.

We are so close to ensuring that Congress can't kill the deal. With Sens. Harry Reid, Debbie Stabenow, and Patty Murray announced their intention to vote in favor of the deal in the last few days, we only need five more Senators to throw their support toward the deal in order to uphold a presidential veto on a resolution of disapproval.

We are also building momentum in the House, where recent announcements by Reps. Jerrold Nadler, Alan Lowenthal, and John Lewis are paving the way for other supporters to come out into the public.

Your Representative may support the Iran deal — which means your Representative needs to hear from you NOW!

Call your Representative NOW at (202) 225-3711 and say,

“I urge Rep. ____ to publicly support the Iran deal. It is our best chance to avoid another war in the Middle East.”

Call-in: Five Senators Needed for Peace

Today, thousands of activists across the country are participating in over 200 events outside the offices of their Senators and Representatives to show their support of the Iran deal.

We are so close to ensuring that Congress can't kill the deal. With Sens. Harry Reid, Debbie Stabenow, and Patty Murray announced their intention to vote in favor of the deal in the last few days, we only need five more Senators to throw their support toward the deal in order to uphold a presidential veto on a resolution of disapproval.

Your Senator is still publicly undecided - and, if we can build enough pressure, may become one of the five to ensure the deal isn't derailed.

Call your Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say

"I urge Sen. ______ to publicly support the Iran deal. It is our best chance to avoid another war in the Middle East."

Call-In: Why isn't your Senator supporting the Iran deal?

On Tuesday, the Arms Control Association released a statement signed by 75 non-proliferation and arms control experts stating that the Iran deal “will reduce the risk of a destabilizing nuclear competition in a troubled region… and head off a catastrophic military conflict over Iran’s nuclear program.”

If experts agree that the deal peacefully stops Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and prevents another U.S. war, why hasn’t your Senator publicly committed to voting in favor of the Iran deal yet?

Call your Representative NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say,

“I urge Sen. ______ to support the Iran deal because it is the best way to avoid the U.S. starting another war.”

Call-In: Tell Your Democratic Senator, Schumer's Wrong on Iran Deal

Statements of support and opposition for the Iran nuclear agreement are being released to the media every day. The verdict on the Iran deal is still unclear, but some Democratic senators will oppose the deal.

One key Democrat who announced his opposition is Sen. Charles Schumer. He claimed that the deal would not prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon in 10 years. But 29 nuclear scientists wrote a letter to the President saying that prior to the negotiations, Iran had the capability to produce a weapon in a few weeks. These scientists – among them six Nobel laureates – also agreed that, contrary to Schumer’s claim, “the deal includes important long-term verification procedures that last until 2040, and others that last indefinitely.”

Sen. Schumer was wrong when he voted for the Iraq War and he is wrong now.

Still, some Democrats in the Senate may be swayed by the influential Chuck Schumer. That’s why, to win this fight, Democratic senators like yours need to hear from their constituents so they know the right way to vote.

Call your Democratic Senator at (202) 224-3121 and say:

"I urge Sen. _____ to publicly support the Iran deal because nuclear experts agree that it will ensure Iran does not build a nuclear weapon and avoids another war of choice."

Call-in: Tell Your Rep. to Stand with President Obama on the Iran Deal

Did you listen to President Obama’s speech yesterday?

The President put it bluntly: the arguments against the Iran Deal do not stand up to scrutiny. But, as President Obama astutely observed, “if you repeat these arguments long enough, they can get some traction.”

That's why President Obama concluded his speech by asking Americans to contact their representatives in Congress. For the Iran deal to succeed, Members of Congress need to hear that their constituents recognize that this deal is the best option for a safer world and a more peaceful future.

Call your Representative now at (202) 224-3121 and say,

“I urge Rep. ______ to support the Iran deal because it is the best option to peacefully shut down the possibility of an Iranian nuclear weapon and because it will keep us from engaging in another war of choice.”

Call-in: Tell Your Senator to Stand for Peace Against the Neocons and Support the Iran Deal

Opponents of the Iran nuclear agreement continue to hurl false and misleading claims at the deal.

Yet, no Iran deal opponent has offered a plausible alternative that ensures Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon. Why? In a recent piece at The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald argues, “[Neoconservatives] don’t want a ‘better deal’: at least not one that’s plausible. They want to keep Iran isolated and demonized and ultimately to depose its leadership through war or other means of aggression.”

Opponents of the Iran deal will keep using all their resources to defeat it. Senators are under a lot of pressure from these groups to say “no” and that’s why they need to hear the voices of citizens who want peace, not another war of choice.

Call your Democratic Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say,

“I urge X to support the Iran deal because it ensures Iran doesn’t acquire a nuclear weapon and I don’t want another war.”

When you’re done, please report your call below.

Call-in: Tell your Senator before the August recess to Support the Iran Deal

The August congressional recess, which begins tomorrow, is when many Senators will finalize their decision on how they will vote on the Iran nuclear deal. Even though, according to a recent poll, a majority of Americans support the Iran nuclear deal, this fight for diplomacy and peace is far from won.

AIPAC and its allies have carried out misleading attacks on the Iran Deal as part of a multi-million dollar campaign to sabotage it. Because of this opposition, no senator’s vote is certain. That’s why the Senate needs to hear from constituents like you TODAY, before the congressional recess.

Senators should go into the recess with constituent voices spurring them to support the Iran Deal.

Call your Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say:

"I urge Sen. _____ to publicly support the Iran nuclear deal which will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and prevent another war of choice."

When you're done, please report your call below and don't forget to call your other Senator!

Call the House: The fate of the Iran deal is in your hands

Bogus attacks against the Iran deal continue to rage, both in the media and in Congress. Claims about the effect on Israel range from the misleading, such as a New York Times op-ed that claimed that “barely any” Israelis support the deal, to the grossly inappropriate, such as presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s comment that graphically invoked the Holocaust. Meanwhile, the Right continues to senselessly attack administration officials and the deal while attempting to recruit Democrats to join them.

But most Americans want their reps to support the deal. A new poll indicates that a majority of Americans — including 79% of Democrats — want their representatives in Congress to vote for the deal.

Yet, we hear that Congressional offices have been receiving more calls against the deal than for it. That’s why it’s imperative that those who support the deal but haven’t called their reps do so NOW!

Call your Rep NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say

"I urge Rep. ______ to publicly support the Iran nuclear agreement and to oppose Republican efforts to attack the deal."

Call-In: Tell Sen. Flake to Support the Iran Deal!

It’s possible that not a single Senate Republican will support the Iran nuclear deal.

Our best chance for a Republican Senator to support the deal is your Senator, Jeff Flake. Senator Flake didn’t join 47 Senate Republicans in their letter to Iran trying to disrupt the negotiations, which he said was not appropriate. Senator Flake said in April that there were no good alternatives to a nuclear deal with Iran.

Call Senator Flake now at (202) 224-4521. When you reach a staffer, you can say something like:

“I urge you to support the Iran nuclear deal.”
