Action Alert: Call Your Senators Today

April 15, 2010 By Andy Amsler

 width=We’ve talked a lot in recent days about the support that’s growing on Capitol Hill for funding a robust International Affairs budget and how vital it is to our national security, economic prosperity, and humanitarian values. Now, it’s time to take action.

Click here to call you Senators and ask them to sign the letter urging Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) and Ranking Member Judd Gregg (R-NH) to include the President’s full request for the International Affairs Budget in the Senate Budget Resolution.

The bipartisan letter, led by Sens. Kerry (D-MA), Lugar (R-IN), Feinstein (D-CA), Voinovich (R-OH), Durbin (D-IL) and Menendez (D-NJ) is circulating in the Senate with only days to go before the Committee mark-up begins.

Help us get more Senators to sign-on by Friday, April 16th. Calling will only take a few minutes of your time – and we’ve got talking points ready to go. With your support, we can elevate development and diplomacy alongside defense to create a better, safer world.
