Yemen is a humanitarian disaster.
Peace Action Maine remains focused on what Maine's Congressional Delegation can do to end this crisis.
Please join us in these next steps:
In the Senate:
Both of Maine's Senators supported an initial vote for SJRes 54(which invokes the War Powers Act to force a vote whether or not the U.S. support the Saudi-led war in Yemen.) Thank them for this support. The next ask: Support SJRes 54 with a straight up or down vote, no amendments.
Senator Collins: (202) 224-2523
Senator King:(202) 224-5344
(Thanks also go to Senator King and Collins for supporting debate on Yemen War last spring)
In the House:
A similar version, H.Con.Res.138, has now been re-introduced as H.Con.Res.142. You’ll remember that Republican leadership recently deprivileged 138 in a fairly close vote (201-187) on a rule for legislation dealing with wolves. Representative Pingree is a co-sponsor of HConRes142- PAM asks you to thank her for her continued support to end U.S. involvement. Representative Poliquin voted to deprivilege 138, to halt debate about the war.
Representative Pingree:(202) 225-6116 or e-mail.
Representative Poliquin:(202) 225-6306 or email
