The ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef social media campaign is growing exponentially as Pastor Youcef’s situation has become more dire. As we reported yesterday, sources in Iran believe the execution order for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani – the Christian pastor convicted and sentenced to death for his faith – may have been issued.  We can confirm that as of yesterday, Pastor Youcef was still alive.

Yet, it is more critical now than ever that Pastor Youcef’s story – more than 860 days illegally imprisoned for his faith – be told around the globe to increase the pressure on Iran to release him. And Tweet for Youcef is helping accomplish just that.

It has been about a month since we launched the Tweet for Youcef campaign, where the ACLJ sends out one tweet a day through users Twitter accounts on behalf of Pastor Youcef. Here is what it is accomplishing:

  • 1,795 individuals have signed up to Tweet for Youcef.

  • 422,063 Twitter accounts are reached each day.

  • 162 of the 193 UN member nations have been reached through Tweet for Youcef (more than 83% of the world’s nations).

  • 22 other countries and territories, including the Palestinian territory, have been reached.

  • 33 nations that are majority Muslim or are under some form of Shariah (Islamic) law have been reached for Pastor Youcef, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Syria.

  • Several people in Iran, including in Tehran, have tweeted calling for Pastor Youcef’s release.

It is critical that this effort continues to grow. Please sign up for this important, truly life-changing effort, and be Pastor Youcef’s voice.

In addition to the Tweet for Youcef campaign, the ACLJ has also started a petition calling for Pastor Youcef’s immediate release and urging Congress to pass a resolution in support of the persecuted pastor. In less than 3 days, more than 72,000 people have already signed this petition. Please add your name here before it is too late.
