A Safer World


The Iran deal reached in Vienna is truly a historic diplomatic achievement. The deal keeps Iran from the bomb and keeps the United States from another devastating war in the Middle East.

In September, Congress is expected to vote on whether or not this agreement goes forward. I hope the lawmakers from our great state will vote and speak out in favor of this accord that will make the world a safer place.

The Friends Committee on National Legislation has more on how we can prepare for the biggest war and peace vote of the year: fcnl.org/iran
