On September 16, 2022, Mahsa (Jina) Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish woman, was arrested in Tehran for improperly wearing her Hijab in accordance with government standards. At the police station, witnesses saw her brutally beaten by the so-called “morality police”, resulting in her death. This savage killing and assault on women’s rights gave rise to mass protests against the Islamic Republic regime, led by young Iranian women which then grew to include all walks of life, in every city of Iran, all collectively seeking an end to the oppression. This Revolution has inspired Iranian and non-Iranians around the world to march in solidarity with Iranian people fighting for their basic Human Rights.
The response of Iran’s authoritarian regime to these protests has been horrific, leading to more arrests, tortures, and the loss of hundreds of innocent lives, including 36 children so far. Notwithstanding international condemnation and calls for restraint, the regime's brutal crackdown on dissent continues to be lethal and designed to maintain a stranglehold over the Iranian people. We need your help in order to hold our elected officials and Represenatives accountable in order to protect Human Rights.
We are adding more ways for other countries to get involved in this ask. We hope our collective voices can lead to a free Iran and a free world.
