S.J. Res. 54 is a joint resolution to direct the removal of the United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress. The resolution was authored by Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, Republican Mike Lee, and Democrat Chris Murphy.
There will likely be a Senate vote on the resolution this week, and our senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray have not yet taken a stance on it. We are asking you to contact our senators in order to show public support for the resolution, in the hopes it will be passed by the Senate. Please make a call today and let them know why you support this resolution.
You can reach their local offices at these phone numbers:

Sen. Maria Cantwell: (425) 303-0114
