American Pastor Saeed Abedini is imprisoned in Iran for being a Christian.
He has been beaten. He has been tormented.
He has suffered nearly three years in some of the world’s worst prisons – simply because he is a Christian.
The Iranian regime demands he recant his Christian faith and become Muslim.
Iran’s actions violate its own constitution and multiple international human rights treaties that Iran has voluntarily signed.
At the ACLJ, we have launched an international public advocacy campaign for his freedom – bringing his case before Congress, the White House, the United Nations, and other world leaders.
Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – must be immediately released. He must be allowed to return home to his wife and two young children in America.
Time is of the essence for Pastor Saeed. We must not be silent. Join the growing call:

It’s an absolute outrage. Turkey is playing political games with an innocent pastor’s life. After the second day of trial – which came after a 3-week delay from the first day – the panel of judges has just thrown American Pastor Andrew Brunson back into prison – once again delaying the trial...
