United for Iran
The mission of United for Iran is to support the movement for genuine democratic reform in Iran, and to improve human rights conditions inside the country, through movement building and civic engagement both inside Iran and globally. In 2009, United for Iran organized a global day of solidarity. In 110 cities across the world, tens of thousands of people took to the streets in support of a demand for freedom and dignity. The global day of solidarity evolved into the largest international demonstration of support for Iranian human rights, and a grassroots movement was born. Much of the organization’s efforts continue to be grassroots and online activism on behalf of Iran’s political prisoners and human rights defenders.
