After years of research and development, the U.S. government has new, non-military options to prevent violent conflict. But now these tools, structures, and resources face devastating cuts as the Trump administration solidifies its military-first foreign policy. Senators Rubio (FL), Young (IN), and Portman (OH) have a chance to step up and protect them.
Take action: Urge your FL, IN, and OH Senator to be an original co-sponsor of the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017.
The U.S. government needs tools outside of the military to address complex crises that the military should not and cannot solve. But President Trump’s proposed cuts to diplomacy and development will drastically undermine civilian efforts to prevent genocide and mass atrocities.
Tell Senators Rubio, Young, and Portman to lead as original co-sponsors of the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017.
We know your advocacy matters. It was as a direct result of outreach from constituents just like you that bipartisan support emerged for a nearly identical bill last year. Please act today.
