I thank the organizers of the 2021 convention for a free Iran and Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, NCRI’s President-elect, for your ongoing commitment and your visionary leadership in support of human rights, social justice, and democracy.

I am concerned about human rights and the freedom struggle in Iran. I am concerned about what is happening in Iran because, as my father, Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” I strongly support the 10-point plan for Iran’s futureI am encouraged by the boycott of the sham “elections” by a large majority of Iranians and the growing support the Iranian Resistance has received from the international community. The Iranian freedom movement is gathering strength daily and will win freedom and real democracy.

I was gratified by Maryam Rajavi’s “I have a dream” speech, which affirmed solidarity with my father, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of a world where all people can live together in justice, equality, and peace.
