Tell your senators to support SJR 68 and take back their authority to declare war

Email your senator today to support S.J.Res. 68, which will put an end to U.S. military actions against Iran that lack specific approval from Congress and prevent any further escalations between the United States and Iran without congressional approval.

For too long, Congress has ceded its constitutional power to declare war to the office of the president. President Trump’s reckless assassination of Qassem Soleimani has shown us the disastrous potential consequences of this lack of congressional will on the authorization of military force.

Today we have an opportunity to change this. As people of faith, we serve as the conscience of our country.

Support S.J.Res. to end U.S. military actions against Iran

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a person of faith, I call on you to SUPPORT S.J.Res. 68, which has bipartisan support and would end U.S. military actions against Iran that lack specific approval from Congress and ensure that we stop any further escalations between the United States and Iran without congressional approval. Congress has the sole authority to declare war -- something the president circumvented by assassinating Qassem Soleimani.

In addition to passing S.J.Res. 68, I call on you to PREVENT the use of the 2001 and 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force -- actions that received bipartisan support before being removed from the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 -- to justify the use of military force against Iran.

Finally, I call on you to RETURN to diplomatic efforts with Iran, to bring us back from the brink of war. President Trump entered office with a denuclearizing Iran and an open diplomatic channel -- the first time in 40 years both of those efforts toward peace have occurred. Now Congress and the president need to work to get that back.

As Christians, we have concern for all of God's children and fear the devastating human costs, especially among civilians, and further destabilization of the region that will occur if we escalate to war with Iran. You must do everything within your constitutional power to ensure this does not happen.

In faith,
