We urge our members of Congress to immediately and publicly pledge to:

→ Pass a War Powers Resolution to finally end U.S. involvement in the War in Yemen.

→ Stop Weapons Sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

→ Call on Saudi Arabia and the UAE to Lift the Blockade and fully open airports and seaports.

→ Support the People of Yemen through the expansion of humanitarian aid for the people of Yemen. 

→ Assemble a Congressional Hearing to examine the U.S. role in the war in Yemen.

The war on Yemen is only possible because the United States continues to arm Saudi Arabia and provide
military, political, and logistical support for the war. The Western powers are active participants.
We have the power to stop the world's largest humanitarian crisis.
