Stop the President from Starting a Nuclear War

Call Senator Gary Peters  202-224-6221

Use the script below when calling Senator Peters. 

"I am _________________ and live in __________________, Michigan.

I ask Senator Gary Peters to co-sponsor the Restricting Use of Nuclear Weapons Act (S. 200), which would prohibit a U.S. President from launching nuclear weapons without a Congressional declaration of war except in response to a nuclear attack.

The bill, introduced by Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) will insure no one person will have the sole authority to launch a civilization-ending nuclear war.

This change to the nuclear launch plan is decades overdue, and it has clearly never been more important than now.  Please co-sponsor and support his important legislation.  Thank You!"

Call Senator Debbie Stabenow and thank her  202-224-4822

Use the script below when calling Senator Stabenow. 

"I am _________________ and live in __________________, Michigan.

I am calling to thank Senator Debbie Stabenow for co-sponsoring S. 200, the Restricting Use of Nuclear Weapons Act.

It is time to prohibit a U.S. President from launching nuclear weapons without a Congressional declaration of war except in response to a nuclear attack.

I thank her for working with the bill's sponsor, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), to make this change in the plan to fire nuclear weapons, a change that is long overdue.  Please thank her for me!"

Weekly calls to senators program

Week 3

I am ______________ and live in ______________, Michigan.

I ask Senator ________________ to make a bold public state- ment denouncing President Trump’s reckless warmongering on North Korea. Will he/she lobby against war on North Korea and for diplomacy?

You can also state one or two of these reasons:

  • The Constitution is clear that only Congress can authorize war — not the President.

  • If there were indeed a war with North Korea, it would be catastrophic for the civilian populations of both North and South Korea, as well as for the Americans in South Korea.

  • Smart, genuine diplomacy can resolve the tension and allow us to avoid a reckless war that could escalate to a nuclear showdown.
