Iran has been in the throes of nationwide anti-government protests since the September 16, 2022 killing of 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini for improper hijab. For the first time since the uprisings began, eight of the Iranian democracy movement’s prominent diaspora leaders will share the stage to talk about the continued viability of the movement, their common vision for Iran’s future, and how democratic change in Iran can change the world.

Co-hosted with The Georgetown School of Foreign Service and the Iranian Cultural Society student organization.
