Say NO to Trump's warmaking!

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

Petition Statement

Congress must force consideration of an Authorization for Use of Military Force, and members of Congress should vote “no” and halt Trump’s march toward war.
There are currently 84,254 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Donald Trump just ordered dozens of Tomahawk missiles to strike Syria.

It's an illegal and unauthorized escalation that could have devastating consequences: killing innocent Syrians and costing the lives of U.S. service members.

Let's be clear: There's no doubt that Bashar Assad is a brutal dictator who has slaughtered his own people and is complicit in the use of chemical weapons. But the solution is not to entangle the U.S. in yet another war in the Middle East, possibly even drawing in Russia and Iran, which have been close partners of the Assad regime.

The U.S. cannot bomb its way to peace, but it does have an essential role to play in the world, including 1) welcoming increased numbers of refugees fleeing Syria, 2) fully supporting international relief efforts for those most affected by this brutal civil war, 3) engaging in multilateral diplomacy at the United Nations to isolate Syria, and 4) sanctioning Russia and other nations which enable the Assad regime.

But none of this will be possible unless we first halt Trump's march toward war.

Please add your name to this emergency petition calling for Congress to act.
