Follow-Up Action Alert on Iran Diplomacy Letter: Thanks and Spanks


Recently we asked you to contact your member of Congress and ask him/her to sign the Dent-Price letter - a letter urging President Obama to seize the opportunity presented by the recent election in Iran to try to re-energize U.S.-Iran diplomacy.

Thousands of you responded to our call, and your representatives took notice.

In the end XX members of Congress, including both Republicans and Democrats, put their names on the Dent-Price letter. This is a major success for any letter, and an even bigger success given how radioactive (no pun intended) Iran-related issues are on Capitol Hill.

A full list of the letter's signers is below - you can check it to see if your member signed on. And then we need you to take one more action.

If your member is one of the XX members of Congress who signed the Dent-Price letter, click here to thank them for doing right thing.

If your member isn't on the list of signers of the Dent-Price letter, click here to send them a message letting them know you, as a constituent, are disappointed in them.

Few would have predicted that the Dent-Price letter would attract so many signers or such a diverse group. The fact that it did so is a testament to the broad support and energetic grassroots activism mobilized in support of the letter. Indeed, the success of the Dent-Price letter demonstrates how important it is that members of Congress hear from you - now and in the future. Never doubt for a minute that your opinion matters to your elected officials, whether with respect to Iran, or Israel-Palestine, or any other issue.
