Senate to Vote Wednesday on Saudi 9/11 Bill Veto Override

The Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on overriding the President's veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act [JASTA]. This bill would remove Saudi Arabia's immunity from lawsuits brought by 9/11 families over the alleged responsibility of Saudi officials for the 9/11 attacks. Override of the President's veto would be a historic repudiation of the previously unaccountable U.S.-Saudi relationship, which has been a root cause of many terribly destructive wars in the region, including the war in Yemen and the war in Syria.

Call your Senator now at (202) 224-3121. When you reach a staffer or leave a message, you can say something like:

"I urge you to vote to override the veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act, so 9/11 families can have their day in court against the Saudi government."

When you've made your call, please report it below.
