Tweet now to defend diplomacy with Iran

Tweet your House member right now to ask them to sign on to the Schakowsky-Price-Doggett pro-diplomacy letter to President Obama.
Dear MoveOn member, 

Yesterday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed S.615, which is essentially an anti-diplomacy bill that—if it becomes law—would give hawks in Congress the power to block a deal with Iran.1

And today, the fight for diplomacy with Iran made its way to the House of Representatives, with three lawmakers—Representatives Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), and David Price (D-NC)—circulating a letter to President Obama expressing their strong support for the ongoing nuclear negotiations between the P5+1 nations and Iran.

We need MoveOn members to support these historic talks and the emerging framework for peace. Can you tweet at your representative right now asking that he or she sign on to the Schakowsky-Doggett-Price letter to President Obama? 

We've made it easy for you to tweet at your representative. All you have to do is click on the link below. The deadline for sign-ons is noon tomorrow.

Tweet your representative now.

Let's be clear: Yesterday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee vote on S.615, the so-called Corker bill, was a setback for MoveOn members who have fought long and hard for diplomacy. But it's certainly not the end of the fight, and diplomacy can still prevail.

The Schakowsky-Doggett-Price letter is an opportunity for us to get pro-diplomacy Democrats in the House on the record. And we'll need them to be visible as we press on to the June 30 deadline for negotiations. 

Signing on to a high-visibility, pro-diplomacy letter is a great first step.

Thanks for all you do.

–Jo, Erica, Ben O., Brian, and the rest of the team
