Tuesday December 2, 2014

Quote of the day:

Tell your Representatives and Senators to continue to support diplomacy with Iran

As you know, last week the parties to the ongoing negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program agreed to extend talks.

Tell your Senators and Representatives in Congress: “I support continued diplomacy with Iran -- and I want you to do the same.”  Call 855-686-6927*.
