Call for Diplomacy in North Korea
The United States and North Korea are at a stand-off, and both countries have threatened to use nuclear weapons. Recent diplomatic progress gives us reason to hope, but with volatile leaders and a complex situation, things could change in a heartbeat. We need an assurance that this crisis will not re-escalate and turn into a military conflict. So far, our Senators have been silent on this issue, which is unacceptable.
We are urging our Senators to support Senate Bill 2047, the Preventing Preemptive War in North Korea Act of 2017. This bill would prevent military action in North Korea without Congressional approval. Without this measure, President Trump has the sole ability to launch a conventional or nuclear attack.
We're launching a state-wide grassroots campaign on this issue, and there are many ways to take action. You can find resources and guidelines by following these links:

Urge your House Representative to support HR 4837, the No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act.
Note: Rep. Jayapal is already a co-sponsor for this bill. If she is your Representative, thank her for taking action!
Sample Phone, Email, or Postcard Script:
Dear Senator: My name is [YOUR NAME], and I’m a constituent from [YOUR CITY]. I urge you to cosponsor H.R. 4837, the No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act. Military action in North Korea would be catastrophic and deadly— prevention of a nuclear exchange is the only sane solution to this crisis. I urge you to speak out publicly to insist on negotiations and diplomacy. Thank you.
