About the Iran Nuclear Agreement:
The vote Congress will take in early September on the Iran deal will likely be the most important vote on war and peace of the decade—equal in importance to the 2002 vote to go to war with Iraq. Without this deal, we could soon be in yet another devastating war in the Middle East.
The vote will be close, and Maryland is one of just ten states that could determine the outcome of the deal. Senator Cardin and Senator Mikulski are still deciding whether to support it, as are several Maryland Representatives.
That is why we must ensure that members of our Congressional delegation hear from us that this deal is the best path to peace. Click here for things you can do today!
You can see below a picture of our group in Rockville on Aug. 20, lobbying Cardin to support the deal, and more pictures here. There was a story in the Montgomery County Sentinel about our action and one on Baltimore TV.
