Stand with Rep. Barbara Lee, and stand up for diplomacy with Iran

Dear Friend,

After more than a decade of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many members of
Congress are trying to force us into a war with Iran.

Fear-mongering and propaganda aside, Iran is not an imminent threat to the
United States -- and we haven't yet exhausted all avenues for diplomacy to
ensure Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon.

But as a result of the Iranian Revolution over 30 years ago, current law
makes it very difficult for American diplomats to talk directly to
representatives of the Iranian government.

That is why Congresswoman Barbara Lee has introduced legislation that, in
her words, "would require President Obama to appoint a high level Special
Envoy to Iran to engage in sustained, comprehensive negotiations to ensure
that Iran does not acquire nuclear weapons."

Sign the petition. Tell your member of Congress to co-sponsor Rep. Lee's
bill to avoid an unnecessary and costly war with Iran. Just click the link
below:
