Hello, I’m United States Senator Maggie Hassan from New Hampshire.

I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to this year’s international convention for Free Iran. I’m grateful for the contributions that the Iranian American community has made to the United States and I’m also grateful to everyone here for your work. Thank you for your advocacy and support for human rights and freedom for the Iranian people.

The regime in Tehran must be held accountable for their repeated human rights violations, including the oppression of women, ethnic minorities, human rights advocates, and journalists. And it’s particularly important to hold the regime in Tehran accountable for its state sponsored support of terrorist organizations.

My support for the Iranian people remains unwavering. The United States must continue to advance in American foreign policy that protects human rights, supports democracies, and allows citizens to live free from persecution.

As shown by the bipartisan support at this conference, democrats and republicans join in solidarity with all of you. I’m proud to call myself an ally and a friend in this fight for freedom and I look forward to continuing to work with you all as we seek a better future for the Iranian people.

Thank you again, and enjoy the convention.
