Join Brooklyn For Peace for an office-warming party at our new office on the second floor of the Brooklyn Commons! (Accessible by elevator.) Take a tour, learn more about our work, meet board members and our Program Director, enjoy light snacks and drinks, make a button, and see what our new space allows us to do. Not only are we showcasing and getting comfortable in our new digs, we’re also kicking off our new open office hours on Fridays from 11 am to 3:00 pm, when we’ll be open to the public as a peace and justice educational resource center. 

Take Trump’s Finger Off the Nuclear Trigger:

Two bills in Congress would restrict the “first use” of nuclear weapons and restrict Trump’s ability to start a nuclear war.
House Bill H.R. 669: Jerrold Nadler & Dan Donovan have NOT signed on. Ask them why, and urge them to sign immediately.
Reps Clarke, Jeffries, Maloney and Velazquez have signed on.  Thank them and urge them to take leadership by getting others to sign on as well.
Senate Bill S. 200: Schumer and Gillibrand have NOT signed on. Ask why they haven’t signed, and encourage them to sign.
Call 877-762-8762 or e-mail. Get contact info here.
NOTE: For Schumer, use his Peekskill office 914-734-1532 which is the most likely to answer.

Action Alert:
The Israel Anti-Boycott Act (S. 720/ H.R. 1697) is the latest, and most extreme, of a series of unconstitutional anti-boycott laws at both the federal and state level.
Although this specific law is focused on Israel, its passage would be an alarming precedent with regard to free speech and the right to boycott in general.
Brooklyn For Peace opposes the legislation.
The American Civil Liberties Union has released a letter to the Senate and a letter to the House, urging them not to co-sponsor the bill because it unconstitutionally discriminates against people “for no reason other than their political beliefs.”
Breaking News: Sen Gillibrand has removed her name as a co-sponsor! Please call to thank her: 202-224-4451
Sen Schumer continues as a co-sponsor of S720. Brooklyn reps Jeffries and Maloney have signed on as co-sponsors of H.R. 1697.
Please contact Sen Schumer as well as Jeffries and Maloney if you’re in their districts, to ask that they remove their names as co-sponsors.  If Clarke, Nadler, or Velazquez represents you, please thank them for their principled stand in not signing on.
Get contact info for elected officials here.

Dirty Energy Bill Coming Up Soon!

The Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017 (S1460) may be voted on soon in the Senate 

The bill would speed approval of exports of liquefied natural gas, give FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) new authority in approving pipelines, and authorize hundreds of millions of dollars to explore for methane hydrates. The “Renewables” section of the bill doesn’t even mention solar or wind energy!
NOTE that this bill has been introduced with Democratic support. Sen. Schumer has not yet taken a position on this bill; we need him to speak publicly against it and to lead opposition to it.
Call Schumer at 866-584-6799 
and Gillibrand at 212-688-6262

Support Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act (HR 1299)
This bill states: “The Honduran police are widely established to be deeply corrupt and to commit human rights abuses, including torture, rape, illegal detention, and murder, with impunity” and that the military has committed violations of human rights,
and asks that the United States suspend all “…security assistance to Honduran military and police until such time as human rights violations by Honduran state security forces cease and their perpetrators are brought to justice.”
Brooklyn Reps Nydia Velazquez and Carolyn Maloney are both co-sponsors! If you’re in their district, please reach out to thank them. We need the other Brooklyn reps (Clarke, Jeffries, and Donovan) to sign on as well. If you’re in their district, please contact them and ask them to add their names. It’s important!
