War is Not the Answer in Syria - It's the Problem

What Congress hears from you right now could determine whether the U.S. bombs Syria.

The world community needs to act forcefully to bring those responsible for using chemical weapons -- and anyone who commits war crime in Syria -- to justice. But U.S. military action will hurt more than help, increasing violence and the risk of more chemical weapons attacks. Diplomatic engagement is what is called for right now. The U.S. should also work with others in the international community, not go it alone.

Your members of Congress will likely vote on whether to approve the use of military force in Syria on September 11 or 12. Many members of Congress have grave doubts about the president's proposal for military action in Syria. But they are also under a tremendous amount of pressure to agree to his request. They are looking to their constituents -- to you and others in your community -- to help them decide how to vote.

There's not much time to avert U.S. military action. Sign your name today to send a message asking your representative and senators to oppose U.S. military action in Syria and support sustained diplomacy.
Dear [Representative],

Please vote no on authorizing military action against Syria.

Military action will not stop the killing in Syria or bring those responsible for the use of chemical weapons to justice.

Diplomatic engagement with all regional stakeholders is what is called for right now.

The U.S. shouldn't respond alone to the use of chemical weapons. Our country should work through the U.N. and the International Criminal Court.

Please vote to oppose U.S. military action in Syria!

Sincerely,

[Your name]
