U.S. armed forces are helping the Saudi and U.A.E. monarchies as they bomb and starve Yemen. The U.S. is refueling Saudi jets, helping with bombing targets, etc. Passing this resolution would end that. The bipartisan resolution has 60 cosponsors including Democratic leaders.

STEP 2:

Call your U.S. Senators and ask them to cosponsor the Senate version of #1 above - "S.J.Res. 54."

- Dial (202) 224-3121
- Ask for your senator by name. (Once for each.)
- Say: "Please cosponsor 'S.J.Res. 54' and end U.S. support for Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen."

5/x
Details:

S.J.Res 54 is Senate Joint Resolution 54.

6/x
SJRes 54 was introduced by Sen @BernieSanders @SenSanders.

Earlier this year, 44 senators, including 5 Republicans, voted for it. After the murder of #JamalKhashoggi, a 2nd vote could push that high enough to pass the bill and end U.S. support for the war.

So share this message widely.
And when Monday arrives, start making those phone calls.
