A Teach-in About Iran, October 7, 2022
Over the past three weeks, Iran has been rocked by protests in response to the death of the 22-year-old Mahsa Jina Amini, a Kurdish-Iranian woman who was brutally beaten by the morality police and died several days later. Protests sparked by her death are calling for an end to compulsory hijab (headscarves) and the longstanding discriminatory laws against women, but the protests are also in response to so much more.
Join us for a SF State (online) Teach-In on Iran to learn more about these protests, to find out what you can do to support Iranian women, and to learn more about the ways US-Iran relations are impacting the situation in Iran. Bring your curiosity and questions—we urge you to educate yourself about this issue. We will have a Q & A period as well.
