Senators: #StandWithHimes, Back Talks to End Syria War

Senators should stand with Jim Himes and 54 other House Democrats in calling for international talks, including with Russia and Iran, to end the Syrian civil war.

Why is this important?

On September 29th, 55 House Democrats led by Connecticut Democrat Jim Himes sent a letter to President Obama calling for international talks, including with Russia and Iran, to end the Syrian civil war. [1]

As Rep. Himes said on the House floor the next day: “The only real solution in Syria...is for the international community, all of the players that have a stake and influence in Syria, to come together today to begin the process of working out an international agreement, the terms of which will undoubtedly be uncomfortable for us, but an agreement that will bring an end to the civil war...Until we do that, we will simply be managing chaos.”[2]

Urge Senators to join with Rep. Himes in supporting international talks, including Russia and Iran, to end the Syrian civil war by signing our petition.
