Call Congress: Oppose U.S. Intervention in Venezuela

We're writing today to request that your call your Representative and urge them to cosponsor H.R.1004, Rep Cicilline’s bill to prevent unauthorized war in Venezuela. We ask this of you because we are concerned that the Trump Administration is considering military intervention in Venezuela without even consulting Congress. Here is what to do:
1. Call your Rep at 202-224-3121
2. Tell the staffer that you want your Rep to cosponsor H.R.1004 to prevent unauthorized war in Venezuela 
3. After the call, ask a friend to do the same
Unauthorized military intervention in Venezuela would make a complex situation far more complex and would be illegal under US and international law. There is no military solution to the crisis in Venezuela and we believe our best chance at peace is through the dialogue called for by the the Vatican, Mexico, and Uruguay, lifting the sanctions, and taking unauthorized war off the table. The American people do not want another U.S. military intervention overseas.
So far, Rep Cicilline’s bill has been cosponsored by 54 other members of Congress who are making it clear that the President does not have the required congressional authorization to use force in Venezuela.
Again, call the Congressional switchboard today at:
