#YemenCantWait: Rally to Stop U.S. participation in Saudi-led war on Yemen

On Monday, 5,000 flowers will be laid on the Capitol lawn in memory of Yemeni children killed or injured as a result of a devastating Saudi-led air war on Yemen, which has been carried out with unauthorized U.S. military participation and led to one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.

But there is hope.

Senators Bernie Sanders, Mike Lee, and Chris Murphy have introduced a resolution (S.J.Res. 54) invoking the War Powers Act to stop U.S. military participation in this inhumane war. The vote is expected on Tuesday.

This will be the first-ever Senate vote to end an unauthorized U.S. war.

The time to act is now. Join us in front of the Capitol Building to make your voice heard.
