Senator Chuck Schumer is being urged to reverse his opposition of the Iran Nuclear Deal. 

A crowd of men, women and even a child rallied outside Senator Schumer's Buffalo office, calling on Schumer to support the Iran Nuclear Deal.  Western New York Peace Center Director Victoria Ross was there.  Ross contends the deal will prevent the U.S. from going to war.

"We want peace," says Ross. "We want diplomacy. We want our congress to do what we ask our children to do, which is to use communication and cooperation as peace-making tools and not to use warmongering."

Schumer has said the deal is "flawed."  He would like negotiators to return to the bargaining table.

The rally was one of many held across New York and the nation in support of the deal.
