Russia has invaded Ukraine. This is a dark moment—one that people all over the world had feared.

We join the international community in condemning these illegal actions taken by Russian leaders. We urge President Putin to immediately withdraw all Russian military forces from all areas of Ukraine and to return to the table for diplomatic negotiations to resolve this crisis.

In this time of great uncertainty, we stand in solidarity with all the people in the region whose lives are being torn apart by war. We must be persistent in calling for solutions that protect human life and diminish suffering.

Diplomacy is the only way this war will end. Lasting peace can only be achieved through peaceful means.

Right now, the House and Senate are working on legislation that could send hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of weapons to Ukraine and impose maximum pressure sanctions on Russia. We must increase the lines of diplomacy, not the flow of weapons.

Maintaining communications between all parties is the best way to resolve this conflict and reduce human suffering. Tell your members of Congress to condemn the Russian invasion and press for diplomacy.
