Don't let Congress Scuttle Diplomacy!

Dear Friends,

Diplomats from Iran, the United States, and the rest of the P5+1 just reached a historic political framework to diplomatically resolve the nuclear issue, a thorny international issue that has persisted for over a decade. Now, some in the US Congress want to scuttle all the progress that our top diplomats have achieved by passing a bill that would strip President Obama of the ability to waive sanctions and demands congressional oversight over any final deal. These moves could generate a retaliation from Tehran, which would likely put an end to this historic diplomatic process.

President Obama has threatened to veto the bill. However, the supporters of the bill are close to reaching a veto-proof majority of 67 Senators. We can prevent this from happening by pressuring key undecided Senators.

Don't let all this important work go to waste. Send a message to your elected representatives by filling out our petition, to tell them that you stand on the side of US-Iran peace.

Kayvon Afshari managed the campaign to elect Hooshang Amirahmadi as President of Iran. In this role, he directed the campaign’s event planning, publicity, online social media, web analytics, and delivered speeches. Mr. Afshari has also been working at the CBS News foreign desk for over five years. He has coordinated coverage of Iran’s 2009 post-election demonstrations, the Arab Spring, the earthquake in Haiti, and many other stories of international significance. He holds a Master in International Relations from New York University’s Department of Politics, and graduated with distinction from McGill University in 2007 with a double major in political science and Middle Eastern studies. At NYU, his research focused on quantitative analysis and the Middle East with an emphasis on US-Iran relations. In his 2012 Master’s thesis, he devised a formula to predict whether Israel would launch a pre-emptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, concluding that an overt strike would not materialize.
