We stand with Iranians fighting for their rights.

We’ve created this action hub to track everything happening on the ground and the actions we’re taking here at home to support them. We recognize that this is a defining moment for our community and we are moved by the bravery, resiliency, and courage on display for the international community.

Take action

These events have demonstrated why it’s so important that we have focused, relentless, organized advocacy that helps our loved ones on the ground. That’s why NIAC is redoubling our work to educate the public, organize our members, and ensure that U.S. policymakers take actions that uplift the cause of human rights and dignity. Here’s what you can do to help.

The United Nations General Assembly Third Committee – which considers measures on human rights – approved a resolution on November 16th condemning the Iranian government’s human rights abuses and expressing support for the Iranian protesters who are fighting for their basic rights and freedom.
