Day of Action – You Blew Us Away!

Whew, what a day. From the moment congressional offices opened this morning, 65 NIAC teams in 26 states started taking action, urging their members of Congress to skip Netanyahu’s harmful address.


Many shared personal stories, about why diplomacy impacts them and their families directly. Others delivered piles of petitions, taking civic action for the very first time. They braved snow and tight work schedules, and in some cases spent hours practicing and preparing for their meetings.

Well, their efforts were worth it.

As I write, nearly 60 members of Congress have opted to skip the speech. Countless others have told our members that they are still on the fence and will be deciding at the eleventh hour.


Make no mistake: you are responsible for helping to make this happen, and US-Iran diplomacy is about each of us – our families, our loved ones, our future. 


That’s why I couldn’t be prouder of the dozens of NIAC members who participated in productive democratic action today, and of the thousands who signed our petition and made calls urging congress to support diplomacy.

Thanks for all that you do.
