@SpeakerPelosi: Send @RepRoKhanna to the conference to end the Yemen war

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to insist that the House-Senate conference on the National Defense Authorization Act include the Adam-Smith-Ro Khanna Yemen War Powers amendment to end all U.S. participation in the famine-causing Saudi war in Yemen. Urge Pelosi to do this by making Rep. Ro Khanna a conferee in the House-Senate negotiations on the NDAA.

Why is this important?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a historic opportunity to end the famine-causing Saudi war in Yemen. The House has passed the Adam Smith - Ro Khanna Yemen War Powers amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would end all U.S. participation in the war. The House and Senate have both passed the Sanders-Lee-Murphy Yemen War Powers Resolution. The House and Senate have both voted to cut off U.S. arms shipments to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for the war. All Speaker Pelosi has to do now to end the war is insist that the House-Senate conference on the National Defense Authorization Act include provisions to end the war that both the House and the Senate have voted for.

Here is a specific, concrete way that Speaker Pelosi can show her commitment to the goal: she can make Rep. Ro Khanna, the original sponsor of Yemen War Powers, a conferee in the House-Senate negotiations on the NDAA.

Urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send Rep. Ro Khanna to the conference to end the Yemen war by signing our petition.
