Win Without War

The deadline to reach a nuclear agreement with Iran is in nine days.

You read that right: just nine days from now, we could be one step closer to solving one of America’s biggest security concerns without resorting to war.

That is, unless Congress steps in at the eleventh hour to kill diplomacy.

Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) is pushing Congress to pass his new Iran sanctions bill, S. 2650, that would tie the hands of our negotiators, cut off funding for inspections, and push Iran away from the negotiating table. Yesterday, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) gave an impassioned speech about just how dangerous this bill is:

Please click here to sign our petition with Congress must let diplomacy work with Iran.

Last November, the U.S. and five other world powers reached a breakthrough agreement with Iran. The so-called Joint Plan of Action paved the way for a comprehensive deal that would remove both the threat of an Iranian nuclear weapon and the potential for a US-Iran military confrontation.

This is our chance to win without war. That’s why we’ve partnered with to petition Congress to support diplomacy.

A year ago, the U.S. and Iran were barely on speaking terms. Now, we could be just one week away from a long-term deal. We’ve been told that negotiators from the United States, Iran and five other world powers have drafted an agreement that is 95% done. There is cautious optimism that we can get a deal, but this historic opportunity could still fall apart.

Stand with Senator Murphy: Tell Congress to let diplomacy work with Iran.

Thank you for working for peace,
