Tuesday, February 1 Capitol Calling Party: US and Iran: The Nuclear Deal and Beyond

On Tuesday, February 1, join CODEPINK Congress, Massachusetts Peace Action, and RootsAction for the first event in our SPECIAL SERIES ON FOREIGN POLICY!

A year into his presidency, Joe Biden continues Donald Trump’s reckless policy approach to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly known as the JCPOA or Iran Nuclear Deal. A violation of international norms and his own campaign promises, Biden’s hesitancy to rejoin the deal as already-negotiated alienates the U.S. from allies, and maintains deadly sanctions that harm the most vulnerable Iranians and weaken civil society. Learn how you can have an impact and put us back on the path to peace with Iran.

*Note: By RSVPing to this event, you are signing up to join the CODEPINK, RootsAction, AND either Massachusetts Peace Action or your local Peace Action affiliate’s email list

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
