We are calling upon our Congressional representatives and Senators to take action for

  • an immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq .
  • an end to the funding of this war except for the safe withdrawal of all our armed forces.
  • no military attacks on Iran .
  • full funding of veterans benefits.
  • aid to reconstruct Iraq under Iraqi control.
  • the redirection of our tax dollars for social programs at home.
