Peace Action’s 2020 Class
Eva Putzova (D-AZ-01)
“We need to engage the world peacefully, using diplomacy, economic assistance and humanitarian aid instead of military aid, arms sales and bellicose threats. There is no place in this world for nuclear weapons and we should advocate for phased-in disarmament. The entire nuclear weapons program [should be phased-out] since nuclear war is immoral, irrational and a waste of our resources.”
Esmeralda Soria (D-CA-16)
Fresno Councilmember Esmeralda Soria recognizes that the military approach should always be a last resort. She plans to prioritize sustained diplomatic efforts to address the conflicts throughout the world. She is ready to be a leader on Congressional oversight to end the carte blanche approach to U.S. interventions.
Marie Newman (D-IL-03)
Marie Newman takes a pro-peace and diplomacy stance on the critical issues of foreign policy: from supporting a full review of the bloated Pentagon budget to rid it of unnecessary expenses to wanting to see the repeal of the outdated Authorizations For the Use of Military Force that have led us into endless wars.
Kara Eastman (D-NE-02)
As a social worker and non-profit professional, Kara Eastman has an impressive track record of serving the American public. In Congress, Eastman will apply that dedication to keeping Americans safe by supporting smart diplomacy and a fully funded State Department, reclaiming Congress’ authority on war, and prioritizing funding for human needs like healthcare and education.
Jessica Cisneros (D-TX-28)
Jessica Cisneros is ready to promote a foreign policy that prioritizes diplomacy over militarism and human needs over wasteful Pentagon expenditures. She wants to reclaim Congressional war powers to end the days of reckless U.S. interventionism, including the U.S.-supported Saudi assault on Yemen.
