Call Congress TODAY to Repeal 2001 AUMF

Posted by Just Foreign Policy on May 21st, 2014

From our partners at Just Foreign Policy

We have an opportunity this week to push for the repeal of the 2001 AUMF. The Schiff-Garamendi amendment (#21) to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would sunset the AUMF twelve months after the adoption of the bill.

Call your Representative TODAY at 1-855-686-6927 and say

I urge Rep. ____ to support the Schiff-Garamendi amendment #21 to the NDAA to repeal the 2001 authorization for the use of military force when the amendment comes to a vote on the House floor. The AUMF has been used as the legal justification for 13 years of war in Afghanistan, the prison at Guantanamo Bay, and an expanding drone war.

When you’re done, report your call below.

[Note: the text of the amendment is here:

the amendment will be considered as "Amendment #21" on the House floor. It was listed as amendment #262 when it was considered by the Rules Committee. That list is here:
