ICC's Largest Advocacy Event of the Year

Join us at the Hart Senate Office Building to hear Senators, Congressmen, and NGO leaders deliver remarks and participate in panel discussions regarding religious freedom in Iran. Interact with leaders and show your support for an important new piece of legislation that seeks to help the persecuted and oppressed in Iran.
ICC will detail our efforts to target those Iranians that imprison and torture
its Christian citizens in Iran’s “living coffin” (Evin Prison).

Persecution at an All Time High in Iran

Iran’s 40-year effort to strangle its Christian population and other religious minorities continues unabated and is accelerating. Its overall human rights record continues to decline as freedom of expression, speech, assembly, and religion are essentially non-existent.

 

No Change in Sight

Iran’s rulers continue to manipulate election results and crush public uprisings calling for change. These human rights abuses must be brought to light and should play a central role in the foreign policy debate regarding Iran.

 

Call for Action

The United States must pursue effective sanctions and garner support from the international community to press for change in Iran.

Join ICC in calling on the United States to pass strong legislation condemning the Iranian regime for its continued violation of human rights and persecution of Christians and other religious minorities.
