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. The United States can — and should — play a positive role for peace in Yemen. But that requires not only an end of arms sales to and other support for 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.
News just broke that the Biden administration is trying to shield Saudi Arabia and the UAE from accountability by potentially only banning some weapons. That’s not centering human rights in U.S. foreign policy, and the President must choose the path of peace, justice, and diplomacy that he was elected for. 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!
