CFPA Delegation for Iran Lobby Day on July 23 meets with Senator Bob Casey (D-PA).KeystoneCoffeeWithSenCasey7-23-15

Thirteen people, including scientific experts, clergy, and an Iranian American participated in CFPA’s Iran Lobby Day to Washington, DC on July 23, soon after the 60 day Congressional Review began of the final Agreement on the Iran nuclear issue. Visits were made to all four US Senate offices representing NJ and PA, as well as to the offices of Representatives Bonnie Watson Coleman, Donald Norcross, and Frank Pallone.

Information packets were given at each appointment, and constructive and respectful conversations were had with elected officials and their senior staffers—including a follow-up conference call with staff to Sen. Bob Menendez. It was a productive day. For further information, contact Rev. Bob Moore at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
