Peace and Diplomacy Go Hand-in-Hand.

70 years after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear weapons are once again on the front pages and on everybody’s mind. Now, we need your help in garnering critical votes in Congress to pass the groundbreaking act of diplomacy that will curtail Iran’s nuclear program.
