RSVP: Ending America’s longest war with Rep. Barbara Lee

Will you join us on Tuesday, May 4 at 8 p.m. ET (7 CT/6 MT/5 PT)?

Dear MoveOn member, 

Earlier this month, President Biden announced that he is pulling U.S. forces from Afghanistan in full, which is a monumental step toward ending the forever wars that have been used as justification for the war on terror against communities at home and abroad, destroyed countless lives, and unleashed violence on millions of Afghans, Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis, Iranians and many others across the world. 

Let's be clear: This critical step is the result of years of work of MoveOn members and activists all throughout the country, advocating for peace and diplomacy. There is still much work to be done to shift America's foreign policy from endless wars and disastrous Trump policies to diplomacy and justice. President Biden's promising first step in ending our longest war provides an opportunity to reimagine America's role in the world.

Join together with fellow MoveOn members this Tuesday for a national conversation with me and special guests Congresswoman Barbara Lee, activist Hoda Katebi, and MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting to hear about how we can take action to insist upon and create a foreign policy that rejects war and is instead rooted in human dignity, justice, and love.

Whether it's supporting a candidate, advocating for policies that deliver for the people, or working to transform our society so that it works for all of us, MoveOn members are committed to an inclusive and progressive future.

That's why we must come together to demand a foreign policy rooted in diplomacy, justice, love, and human dignity. That means redirecting bloated Pentagon spending that invests in conflict, human suffering, and war to instead invest in diplomacy and the improvement of human lives and livelihoods.

The Moment With MoveOn, a new monthly livestream, brings members together to dig into topics like these and more throughout the year as we discuss the important issues of the day and how to make an impact to create not just a country that works for all of us but a world that works for all of us.

 Here's what this week's livestream will cover: 

  • A strategic vision for American foreign policy that advances diplomacy and honors our collective humanity.

  • Talking with leaders like Rep. Barbara Lee, D-CA, widely known for her leadership in opposition to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which was used to create a culture of forever war 20 years ago, about the withdrawal of troops in Afghanistan and what happens next.

  • How MoveOn members can take action and get involved in current foreign policy fights like the Iran nuclear deal, ending the war in Afghanistan, and ending the US-backed Saudi blockade of Yemen.
