This year’s Free Iran Convention in Tirana, Albania… provides an unparalleled opportunity for people to come together in support and recognition of human rights and also advocate for positive, democratic change in Iran.

Since the revolution of 1979, countless Iranians have been crippled and abused under the leadership of an oppressive regime. I am proud that the United States, other nations, and organizations such as yours continue to stand up for the freedom of the people of Iran. However, the devolution of rights and the worsening of life in Iran shows that there is still much more we can do to deliver liberty and justice.

Thanks to your organization’s efforts, the challenges facing Iranians have been brought to the attention of the international community. I commend each of you for all you have done to strengthen ties among the proponents for human rights and for all you have done to fight for a government that represents the will of its people.
