The ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef campaign is having a tremendous impact around the world. Every day people all across the world are learning about Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s plight, as Iran continues to illegally hold Pastor Youcef in prison, under the threat of execution for his Christian faith, for more than 848 days.

Here are some important facts about the impact you are having by being Pastor Youcef’s voice:

  • 1,293 people are standing in solidarity with Pastor Youcef, sharing their voice by allowing us to send a daily twitter update from their account.

  • 297,292 twitter accounts are reached around the world each day with news and informational updates about Pastor Youcef.

  • Pastor Youcef’s story, through the Tweet for Youcef campaign, has reached people in every continent and subcontinent in the world.

  • People in more than 160 countries are receiving and clicking on tweets to learn about Pastor Youcef’s plight.

  • People from several countries controlled by Islamic Shariah law are also tweeting and receiving tweets in support of Pastor Youcef, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, and Kuwait.

The ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef campaign has also gained international media attention.

International attention on Pastor Youcef has led world leaders from more than 15 nations to officially condemned Iran’s actions and call for Pastor Youcef’s immediate release, but this number should be much higher.

In order to increase international pressure on Iran, we would like to reach over 1 million people every day for Pastor Youcef. In less than two weeks we are one-third of the way there. We still need 2,500 people to join the Tweet for Youcef effort to help us reach our goal.

If you haven’t already, lend your voice to Pastor Youcef and sign up to Tweet for Youcef today, and please encourage your friends, neighbors, and people in your church to join as well.
