Urge United States Congress: No War With Iran
United States Congress
On January 2, 2020, a drone strike ordered by United States President Donald Trump killed Iran’s highest-ranking military commander, Qassem Soleimani. Peacebuilders are profoundly concerned over heightened prospects for U.S.-Iranian hostilities. Civil society actors have worked for years on the ground to keep pathways open for diplomacy and de-escalation, we call on peacebuilders worldwide to advocate to support them.
Sign our petition below to urge the United States Congress to prevent war with Iran.
Right now, the United States Congress is reviewing several measures to mitigate the prospects of a catastrophic war with Iran. They need to hear from as many people as possible that peacebuilding is still possible and war is not the right path forward.
Peacebuilders believe that deliberations of peace and war must transcend party partisanship. We urge Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to take measures necessary to mitigate escalations that may lead to a catastrophic war with Iran and instead take proactive steps towards de-escalation and diplomacy.

Dear Member of Congress
As a peacebuilding supporter, I am deeply concerned about escalating tensions between the United States and Iran. President Trump's assassination of Qassem Soleimani, a senior Iranian military leader, was an extreme escalation that risks leading to a catastrophic war with Iran. Such a conflict would make the United States less safe, would undermine U.S. long term interests in the Middle East, and would endanger innocent civilians.
I urge you to use all tools in the Congressional toolkit to prevent a U.S. war with Iran. I urge you to instead take proactive steps towards de-escalation and diplomacy.
Peacebuilders believe that deliberations of peace and war must transcend political partisanship. Our members have spent decades working with U.S. Members of Congress of all parties on sensible, evidence-based policies to advance peace and security. We call upon all Members of Congress to put policy over party and advocate for No War With Iran.
