ADVOCACY ALERT

Accusing Iran of violating ‘the spirit’ of the 2015 “Nuclear Agreement,” President Trump has announced that he will pull out absent significant changes to the negotiated Agreement.

  • Please consider meeting with your congressional representatives to urge support for the Agreement. At the conference, the Tuesday afternoon session on “Engaging in Constructive Advocacy with Members of Congress” will help you prepare.
  • If you would like to visit “the hill” while you are in the D.C. area, you must schedule a meeting asap. Contact your representative’s and senators’ offices. (See below.) Please let Kathleen MacLeod (Advocacy Chair) know your plans by email or phone.

Thank you,

Kathleen MacLeod (619-262-4223) kathleen@peacecorpsiran.org and Carolyn Yale (510-325-5005) carolyn@peacecorpsiran.org
