Dear Mr Ebrahim Raisi, Head of the Judiciary in Iran​:

I urge you to release Monireh Arabshahi, Yasaman Aryani and Mojgan Keshavarz immediately and unconditionally as they are all prisoners of conscience, jailed solely for their human rights work. Pending their release, ensure that they have regular contact with their families and a lawyer of their choosing.

I also urge you to stop criminalizing the work of women’s rights defenders, including those who peacefully protest against forced veiling, and abolish forced veiling laws.

You don't have to leave your phone number, but if you do, we’ll call you about ways to support our work, including fundraising, other campaigns, events and the impact we have together. You can opt out at any time.
