Take Action Tell Congress to End US Military Participation in Yemen

For nearly 4 years, the US has been backing a UAE and Saudi-Led intervention in Yemen’s civil war. Across the four years, the Saudi-led coalition has routinely targeted civilians and non-military infrastructure with their airstrikes. Alongside the direct civilian deaths, which have included such targets as a school bus with 40 children, the bombings have caused a famine and an unprecedented cholera outbreak. Between March 2015 and August 2018 the United Nations documented over 17,000 civilian casualties It is beyond time for US involvement in this intervention to end.

A bipartisan group of members of Congress has filed Yemen war powers legislation in both the House (H.J.Res. 37, introduced by Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17)) and the Senate (S.J.Res. 7, introduced by Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT), Mike Lee (UT), and Chris Murphy (CT)). In the coming weeks, we expect every member of the 116th Congress to have to take a stand on US military participation in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Last December, we asked you to support this very same legislation. After hearing from concerned citizens, this legislation passed in the Senate with a vote of 56-41. Former Speaker Ryan blocked the House from voting on the resolution, but now under new House leadership, we have a clear path toward votes on the House and Senate floor.

Your voice is needed. Act now to support an end to the world’s greatest humanitarian crisis.
