WHO WE ARE
a collective group of Iranian faculty, students, staff, and alumni from universities across the globe, committed to supporting Iranian people demanding their rights.
Raising awareness, joining solidarity events, supporting students, and connecting with your representatives
Here are a few of the many reasons why we should be concerned about Iran and Iranian protests:
ًWomen in Iran are denied fundamental rights as second-class citizens, such as the right to choose their clothing, the right to leave the country without the permission of a male guardian, custody of their children, singing in public, riding bikes on streets, getting divorced, not being able to take top priority roles in the government, and entering stadiums to watch male sports events. This list may go on forever.
People are under constant strain from social, economic, and environmental challenges, as well as government administrative corruption.
People are being killed or arrested in Iran's streets while protesting for their rights; their internet has been shut down, and people have lost contact with the rest of the world.
