Call Congress: The US MUST Return to the JCPOA

Nearly two months into the Biden administration, the fate of the Iran deal remains uncertain. Rather than abide by his campaign promise to return the U.S. to the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), the Biden team has done nothing to reverse Trump’s failed “maximum pressure” policy that imposed crushing sanctions on a nation of 83 million people amidst a global pandemic. The longer Iran and the U.S. remain in a political deadlock, the greater the risk of escalating  tensions in the Middle East, of bringing Iran closer to having nuclear weapons capability, and of irreparably harming the road to diplomacy.

We need Congress to step up and put additional pressure on the Biden administration for a swift and decisive return to the JCPOA. Call your members of Congress TODAY and urge them to take immediate action. 

Step 1: Find your house representative and your senators and pick a time before 5 PM ET to call.

Step 2: Dial 844-ACT-NIAC (844-228-6422) to connect with the Capitol Switchboard and ask the operator to connect you to your representative’s office.

Step 3: When you connect with the office, whether it’s with a person or the voicemail, make sure to say your name and that you are a constituent and share your concern about the Iran nuclear deal. Here are some sample scripts:

**For your House Representative**
“My name is [your name] I am a constituent from [your town] calling to ask [your Representative] to support President Biden in returning the U.S. and Iran into the nuclear deal with Iran. After years of punishing sanctions and escalating tensions that risked war, the U.S. has a limited window to return to the successful and historic nuclear agreement. President Biden must restore the deal as a first step to end Trump’s damaging policies.
Can I count on [your Representative] to urge President Biden to fulfill his commitment to rejoin the nuclear deal with Iran as a starting point for broader diplomacy?”

**For your Senators**
“My name is [your name] I am a constituent from [your town] calling to ask [your Senator] to sign the Murphy-Kaine letter backing a compliance-for-compliance return to the nuclear deal with Iran. After years of punishing sanctions and escalating tensions that risked war, the U.S. has a limited window to return to the successful and historic nuclear agreement. President Biden must restore the deal as a first step to end Trump’s damaging policies. Can I count on [your Senator] to sign the Murphy-Kaine letter urging Biden to rejoin the nuclear deal with Iran as a starting point for broader diplomacy?

Step 4: Text 5 of your friends or family members to ask them to make a call as well! The more calls we can generate, the more likely we are to win.
