Iran Lobby Day: Give Diplomacy a Chance!

When: Monday, June 23, 2014, 7:00 am to Tuesday, June 24, 2014, 2:00 pm
Where: Congressional Offices • Washington, DC, Boston, and Statewide

Iran claims its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes, but the U.S. suspects Iran of making preparations to start building a nuclear weapon in the future, and has applied sanctions to Iran’s trade. 

The U.S. and Iran signed an interim nuclear agreement in November, and are negotiating a permanent deal.  But Congress risks derailing a peaceful solution to the nuclear standoff with resolutions that would interfere with the negotiations.   When a deal is agreed, we will need leaders in Congress who will advocate against war and repeal sanctions to uphold an agreement.

Congress should: 


NOT pile on new sanctions


NOT try to legislate the exact terms of the permanent agreement, which would make negotiations more difficult


SUPPORT robust diplomacy

Join Peace Action when we visit Congressional offices on June 23-24 in both Washington and Boston!   We will advocate for peaceful  resolution of our differences with Iran.   Contact us to join the delegation!
