The history of organized American Jewry has reflected the core Judaic values of justice, respect, community, and repairing the world. Those values have driven American Jewry’s leading role in human rights causes in the past. Those same Judaic values inspire the creation of a committee to support the Woman Life Freedom movement and the people of Iran who face death and torture in the cause of freedom.
Since the murder of Mahsa Amini by the Iranian regime’s religious police for showing her hair in public, the women of Iran have led countrywide protests calling for an end to the Islamic Republic. The global Iranian diaspora has responded in an unprecedented manner with protests in cities around the world seeking to amplify the voices of their compatriots.
These freedom fighters continue with no sign of relenting on their calls for regime change. Calls for “Woman Life Freedom” and the removal of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei echo from rooftops, down street corridors, across campus hallways, and on government billboards. These brave Iranians have expressed their hatred for the ruling clerics not only in their words, but in their actions. They aspire for a democratic Iran which respects the rights of its people and is at peace with the world.
With governments, news media, and activists distracted by global events, there has been inadequate support for the Iranian people in the face of the brutal human rights abuses by the Iranian regime. It is critical to recognize this historic movement in Iran and to help sustain its momentum.
The Jewish Committee to Support Woman Life Freedom (JCWLF) in Iran will promote grassroots support of the Iranian diaspora protesters and will primarily offer microgrants to support protest activities around the world.
The Jewish Committee to Support Woman Life Freedom in Iran is led by a Steering Group whose members are:
