In January 2021, Action Corps circulated a joint call for the World Says NO TO WAR ON YEMEN Global Day of Action, signed by 385 organizations in 28 countries, making this the largest antiwar coordination in nearly two decades. Tens of thousands of people around the world participated in this effort to stop the largest humanitarian crisis on Earth. A few days later, President Biden announced the U.S. would stop support for offensive operations in Yemen. Write your member of Congress to stop all U.S. participation in the war in Yemen.
