To: The United States Senate
I support diplomacy with Iran
"After decades of hostility, we've just witnessed a deal between the United States and Iran. This deal is a first step towards ensuring we don't get entangled in another senseless war in the Middle East. We call on you to publicly support the deal between the United States, Iran and the international community -- and be a champion for diplomacy."
Why is this important?
After decades of silence, last night a deal was announced between Iran, the United States and members of the international community.
Although it’s just an interim six-month agreement, yesterday’s deal makes military action on Iran far less likely.
It’s our responsibility to show our representatives that when they pursue diplomacy, we’re right behind them. The next 72 hours will be crucial. How this deal is received by the public will either create an incentive for leaders to continue to embrace diplomacy, or, if pro-war conservative lobby groups have their way, risks causing them to turn back.
Will you join our campaign and show that there is overwhelming public support for diplomacy with Iran by sending a message to every U.S. Senator calling on them to support this deal and give diplomacy a chance to work?
Over the last few weeks we’ve seen the impact we’ve been able to make. Our actions helped create the political space for President Obama to speak to President Rouhani and helped ensure that sanctions weren’t raised on Iran during the negotiations.
Now, it’s important for all of us to help create the space for efforts like this to happen more frequently--and for this process to lead to a final agreement in six months. It’s our responsibility to show our representatives that when they pursue diplomacy we’re right behind them. President Obama took a risk in pursuing this deal, and now we’ve got to make sure our voices of support are heard in the Senate. Will you act now?
