We at the ACLJ are grateful for the creative minds of individuals who have taken initiative to help free American Pastor Saeed Abedini. As the November 24th deadline for the nuclear negotiations with Iran approaches, a movement has started to blitz the White House with postcards asking that President Obama not forget Pastor Saeed, a U.S. citizen.
You can join these efforts. If you have a Facebook account, visit this event page and join the cause.
Churches, organizations, and individual can join these efforts to plead for Pastor Saeed’s release by purchasing and mailing a pre-designed postcard addressed to President Obama. Postcards are available for purchase through Trinity Worldwide Reprographics by calling (562) 567-2050 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s simple – order a bundle of postcards and pass them out to your friends and family to send. It costs $25.60 to order 100 postcards, with the cost decreasing for each 100 thereafter. Set up a table at your church and have people sign the postcards and mail them to the White House.
The message is already written for you – all you need to do is order, sign, and mail. The postcard reads:
A man in your position has been given great power and responsibility to represent every American, whether on domestic or foreign soil. Please hold to your own words, that no one is left behind. We, the American people, ask you to do everything within your power to bring U.S. citizen, pastor, husband & father, Saeed Abedini, home to his family from his time of incarceration in Iran.
According to the organizer of this effort, over 80,000 postcards have already been ordered. The goal of the effort is to have “one card, on united message, and one voice to speak up for our brother in chains.”
Join the movement today.
Because of your support, we have taken Pastor Saeed's case to the U.N., White House, and Congress. Your support makes his defense possible.

Worldwide attacks on religious freedom and expression are not phenomena of the past. Far from it, countries around the globe continue to hamper and harm fundamental rights. Countries that exhibit such a blatant disregard for the rule of law must be held accountable. In a former post, we explained...
