PEACE:  The war in Ukraine had raged for over a year.

Congress has responded by sending tens of billions of dollars in weapons and security assistance to Ukraine—including cluster bombs and depleted uranium munitions. 

But this approach has not brought Ukraine nor the world closer to peace.

We firmly believe Congress can play a constructive role in helping to end violence in Ukraine and worldwide. However, lawmakers seem locked in a false belief that they have only two ways to respond: provide unchecked military aid or no support for Ukraine at all.

Today, we are calling for another way forward.

Lasting peace can only be achieved through peaceful means. It’s time for our leaders to support the difficult work of finding a negotiated resolution to the war in Ukraine rather than relying on a harmful and futile militarized approach. Urge Congress to support a diplomatic path out of the conflict rather than rely on endless military aid.
