To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Rebuke President Trump for illegally attacking Syria. Invoke the War Powers Resolution to compel withdrawal of U.S. forces from unauthorized conflict.
There are currently 7,887 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

President Trump has attacked Syria without Congressional authorization, violating the U.S. Constitution. Congress must assert its war powers, invoking the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution.

Congress must insist that no further attacks take place without Congressional authorization and that U.S. forces be withdrawn from unauthorized conflict. Congress must invoke the War Powers Resolution to debate and vote on a privileged resolution for the withdrawal of U.S. forces if President Trump refuses to remove U.S. forces from the conflict.

Urge your Senators and Representative to invoke the War Powers Resolution to compel withdrawal of U.S. forces from the conflict by signing our petition.
