On August 6, let’s take action to build a safer world by supporting the #IranDeal
Seventy years ago, on August 6, 1945, the first atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. On August 6, 2015, please join people from around the world to tell leaders to build a safer world – and support the Iran agreement now before the U.S. Congress.
The Iran agreement is an example of diplomacy and leadership overcoming extremely difficult challenges. Despite a deficit of trust and confidence, negotiators from multiple countries were able to forge an agreement that—as former Senator Sam Nunn said recently—will make it “extremely difficult” for Iran to develop a bomb in the next 10-to-15 years. The consequences of rejecting the hard-fought deal, he said, would be “very severe.”
