Join CODEPINK Congress as we educate, activate and mobilize for peace legislation!

In the wake of Israel killing seven Iranian diplomats at Iran’s embassy in Syria, the danger of a regional war intensifies in the Middle East, where Israel has turned Gaza into a graveyard and famine looms. The National Security Council says the US–the largest arms supplier to Israel– was not involved in Israel’s attack on the Iranian embassy April 1, 2024, but The Intercept reports Iran has issued a private warning to the Biden administration. If the US defends Israel against a retaliatory Iranian strike, the US–with 30,000 troops stationed in Iraq, Syria and Jordan– could become a target. Meanwhile, a dozen Republican lawmakers are circulating a letter accusing President Biden of embracing a strategy of appeasement with Iran.

Where are we headed? How can we avert a wider regional war? Join CODEPINK Congress as we discuss the dangers of the US-Israel alliance and the imperative to avert a war with Iran and end US complicity in genocide.
