Zan. Zendegi. Azadi.
The death of Mahsa Amini death sparked massive, nationwide, women- and youth-led protests that continue to this day and now threaten the very foundations of the brutal, oppressive theocracy in Iran.
In an effort to put down the uprising, Islamic Republic of Iran forces targeted unarmed protesters with gratuitous, barbaric violence, and frequently, lethal force. Hundreds have been killed, including dozens of children as young as seven. Untold thousands more have suffered grievous injuries. In addition, tens of thousands have been arrested and imprisoned, including dozens of lawyers who are being prosecuted solely because of their work representing protesters. Some protesters have already been executed. Remarkably, the protesters continue to persevere.
Join us to honor the memory of Jina Amini, to take stock of the protests at the one-year mark, to demonstrate solidarity with our Iranian lawyer colleagues, and to pay tribute to the legions of protesters who are risking their very lives and their liberty in their quest for democracy, freedom, justice, and the rule of law.
In the words of the protesters' rallying cry: Zan. Zendegi. Azadi. Women. Life. Freedom.
