Here’s a tip on contacting our elected officials. Since the anthrax scare, all physical mail (letters, packages) sent to Washington are scanned by the Dept. of Homeland Security. This can mean that a letter sent to a Senator or Congresswoman will take weeks to arrive. If you’re sending a letter, send it to one of their NH offices, where it will be faxed, and sent to DC right away. Letters and calls are the most effective means of communicating with elected officials.

The Biden administration has moved quickly with new executive orders. In January, five House Democrats called on President Biden “to quickly work with Congress to kill the 2002 authorization for the Iraq War and hone the 2001 powers for the war on terrorism.”  While executive action to address endless wars is welcome, we also know that congressional action is needed to repeal the Authorizations for Use of Military Force (AUMF).

Please help build co-sponsorship of Rep. Barbara Lee’s (CA-13)

H.R. 256 to repeal the 2002 Iraq AUMF.  There is leadership in the relevant committees who are supportive of this bill, but that is not enough. The more co-sponsors that we get, the more likely it is that this bill actually moves.

NH Representatives Pappas & Kuster have NOT yet agreed to co-sponsor.  They’ve told us that they have not heard from their constituents on this issue so aren’t convinced people in NH care about it.  Let’s show them we do! To send a message quickly and easily, please click here!


Dear Representative [Kuster or Pappas],

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) is seeking co-sponsors for HR 256, which would repeal the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Against Iraq. I urge you to sign on to HB 256 as a co-sponsor and to persuade your House colleagues to do the same .


  • The 2002 Iraq AUMF is no longer relevant: US participation in the Iraq War ended in 2011.
  • It is not needed to continue the current level of military operations in Iraq.
  • Left in place, it creates the potential for the executive branch to justify military actions that have not been authorized by Congress.
  • For me personally, repealing the 2002 Iraq AUMF is so important because [FILL IN]

Thank you for your attention and consideration, working toward a safer world free of military conflict –
