Dear GVCP Member:

This Month’s Letter: Tell Congress to Prevent War with North Korea
War is not the answer in North Korea. However, the President’s dangerous rhetoric and frequent threats make the prospect of war seem more and more possible. It’s time for Congress to reassert its constitutional authority over the power to decide when the United States initiates war. Write to your members of Congress and ask them to support the No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act of 2017.
Congress must immediately seize control of this situation and stop the dangerous, escalating rhetoric on both sides from sparking a human disaster for the world. Congress must reassert its constitutional authority over the power to decide when the United States initiates war. [Adapted from FCNL]
Tell your Representative and Senators to stand up against war. Tell her/him to support a diplomatic pathway for peace with Korea. They can do this by cosponsoring the No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act of 2017.
This bill is H.R. 4140 in the House of Representatives, and S. 2016 in the Senate.
Write to Sen. Schumer, Sen. Gillibrand, and your representative, by postal letter or email.
Sen. Charles Schumer Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Rep. Chris Collins
