Call to Action for Aleppo

12/15/2016

 Urge Your Leaders to ACT NOW!


Call on the White House, your Congressmen & Senators to act immediately to put consequences on responsible parties for violating the cease fire and push them to a cease fire. Urge them to issue warrants for the arrest of parties to the conflict who have been responsible for mass torture. We have the legal authority to do this under the UN Convention Against Torture 1984 and section 134 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988.

Call the President, Department Of State & Russian Embassy:
Call the President, State Department and the Russian embassy to demand immediate ceasefire and safe passage for the over 70,000 civilians who are trapped in the besieged areas. Men, women, and children are faced with harrowing life-or-death choices: facing more bombs and airstrikes, fleeing for safety and living as internally-displaced persons (IDPs) or surrendering.



Be mindful of Eastern times if calling the White House switchboard or DC numbers of our leaders. First priority is to call DC offices of our congressional leaders.

Call you Representatives:
Find the phone number from the list below, take those 2-3 minutes out of your 24 hour day and call. These calls get logged. The number of positive and negative calls play a key role on how our Representatives vote on the House floor. So please do your part. This is democracy. Your voice counts. All you need is a working phone, 2-3 minutes out of your busy life and motivation.

Please be mindful of time differences when calling DC Offices.
