Right now, there’s a troubling open question in Washington: will the Biden White House only tinker with Trump’s disastrous approach to Yemen or prioritize human rights? We *need* President Biden to unequivocally end decades of destructive U.S. policy in Yemen. That requires not only an end of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), but also an end to all U.S. military involvement in Yemen writ large in favor of deep investments in lasting diplomacy, accountability, and people-centered solutions.
Right now the Biden administration is split on how far it will go in changing U.S. policy in Yemen, so we have an opportunity to shape the story of what a new U.S. role in Yemen will look like. Writing a letter to the editor (LTE) is one of the quickest, most effective ways to fight for and spread a message of peace. Policymakers at every level, from the Mayor’s office to the U.S. Congress, to the White House, closely track newspapers to see what their constituents are saying about them. Let’s end U.S. support for the brutal Saudi- and Emirati-led coalition intervention in Yemen, and be a positive force for peace!
After you submit your name and address, choose which newspaper you'd like to submit your letter to. Then, you can use the Talking Points and and sample letter below to write your own LTE. Don't forget you can come back here and submit as many letters to as many different papers as you want!
