HEROISM FOR OUR TIME -
AN AFTERNOON OF SOLIDARITY TO FREE IRAN'S POLITICAL PRISONERS

The January 9, 2022 Program was co-sponsored by
San Francisco's Unitarian Universalist Society Social Forum
and the International Emergency Campaign to Free Iran' s Political Prisoners

Over 30,000 people worldwide joined via Zoom, YT Livestream, Radio Pooya, Radio Payam and Clubhouse.

To hone down this 2-hour program and correct technical problems with the recording, we have posted an edited version focused on the main presentations on YouTube; the video solidarity statements and music can also be viewed there separately.
