Iraq Action Days: Change Begins With You, April 14-16, in Washington, DC

Veterans for Common Sense and Education for Peace in Iraq Center

Dear VCS Supporters,

Veterans for Common Sense asks you to come to Washington DC this April to urge Congress to respond to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time. Millions of Iraqis have been uprooted by violence. Families like ours need food, medicine and shelter.

It’s time for action. It’s time for Iraq Action Days, April 14 – 16. 

On Monday, April 14, the Institute for Middle East Studies at George Washington University will host an all-day Iraq Forum, sponsored by EPIC and more than 20 humanitarian organizations, including Veterans for Common Sense, including those operating inside Iraq and in the Middle East region.

On Tuesday, April 15, and Wednesday, April 16, we will meet with our lawmakers to urge them to do more to address urgent humanitarian needs in Iraq and the region. 


1. Strengthen humanitarian assistance to the region.
2. Increase support for reconciliation, recovery, and community-based development in Iraq.
3. Improve U.S. admissions and resettlement of especially vulnerable refugees.

This April we need supporters like you to come to Washington DC to petition our elected leaders directly. Right now, Congress and the administration must take further steps to respond to the urgent needs of Iraqis affected by ongoing violence in Iraq. The first step begins with you.

It’s time for action. It’s time for Iraq Action Days, April 14 – 16.
