We need progressive leadership that prioritizes peace and human rights in Congress!

We need progressive leadership that prioritizes peace and human rights in Congress!

To the U.S. House of Representatives:

We urge you to support strong, progressive leadership for the incoming Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. It is beyond time that this role is held by someone that prioritizes peace and human rights, not militarism and defense corporations.

Why is this important?

House members are rapidly maneuvering to decide who will be the new Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, after 30-year veteran of Congress Eliot Engel looks set to be widely defeated by Jamaal Bowman.

This is a once in a generation chance to ensure the leadership of this key committee is someone who’ll stop seeing every foreign policy decision as a military opportunity. But some of the names being discussed are the most hawkish, defense industry-funded, neoconservative politicians in Congress. We have to act fast to stop them.

Add your name to our urgent petition calling for strong, progressive leadership that prioritizes peace and human rights, not militarism and defense corporations.

Reasons for signing

  • We need peace and the money for war to be spent on schools, health care, affordable housing, social services.... And because Palestinians need justice, not oppression from the Israeli military propped up with our tax dollars.
