Nearly two months into the Biden administration, the fate of the Iran deal remains uncertain. Rather than abide by his campaign promise to return the U.S. to the Iran nuclear deal, the Biden team has done nothing to reverse Trump’s failed “maximum pressure” policy that imposed crushing sanctions on a nation of 83 million people amidst a global pandemic. The longer Iran and the U.S. remain in a political deadlock, the greater the risk of escalating tensions in the Middle East, of bringing Iran closer to having nuclear weapons capability, and of irreparably harming the road to diplomacy.
That’s why NIAC wants YOU to join our JCPOA Week of Action. Beginning March 29th, thousands of pro-diplomacy Americans across the country will raise their voices in support of the JCPOA. Together, we can urge Biden to turn the page on Trump’s failed “maximum pressure” campaign and make it clear to the new administration that we must save the JCPOA and re-pave the path to diplomacy with Iran.
NIAC’s Week of Action coincides with the first two weeks of Norooz, the Persian New Year celebrated by our community in the United States and around the world. Norooz represents not only the welcoming of Spring, but also the renewed opportunity for peace and diplomacy.
