Decision Time on Iran Diplomacy
Your representative is about to decide whether to join a group speaking out for diplomacy with Iran.
Can you make a quick call TODAY to support diplomacy with Iran?
Three House members -- Jan Schakowsky (IL), Lloyd Doggett (TX), and David Price (NC) -- are asking other representatives to sign a letter supporting the historic diplomatic breakthrough with Iran. The letter closes early next week, so call today and urge your representative to sign on.
I'll be on the Hill today and tomorrow meeting with congressional offices. But they can't just hear it from me -- they need to know that their constituents support diplomacy with Iran.
Call the Capitol Switchboard at 1-855-68 NO WAR (1-855-686-6927) and ask to be connected to your representative's office.
Before you call, here's how to pronounce the names. Schakowsky is shuh-KOW-ski, and Doggett is DOG-it.
Here are some talking points to help you make your call:
- Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm from [CITY, STATE].
- I'm calling to ask Rep. [REP NAME] to sign on to the Schakowsky-Doggett-Price letter on diplomacy with Iran. The letter supports the ongoing negotiations to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran and another war.
- This letter closes early next week, so I hope the representative will sign today to show his/her support as negotiators work towards a final agreement.
If you get a chance, we'd love to know what kind of response you get. Feel free to email me what you find out. We'll update the text of the Schakowsky letter with the signers once that list becomes public.
