Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been arrested yet again for being a Christian.
Iranian authorities brutally beat him as his terrified family watched.
His young son was tasered by authorities after he opened the door.
Years ago, the ACLJ worked tirelessly to save Pastor Youcef who was sentenced to death after refusing to recant his Christian faith and convert to Islam.
Now he’s been thrown into an Iranian prison, notorious for its appalling inhumane conditions – because of his Christian faith.
Iran’s actions violate its own constitution that guarantees religious freedom, and multiple international human rights treaties.
We’re once again ramping up our legal advocacy efforts to fight across the globe for Pastor Youcef’s freedom and hold Iran accountable for its heinous persecution of Christians.
We must take swift action to free Pastor Youcef before it’s too late.
As we fight to free Pastor Youcef and demand protection for Iran’s Christians, we urgently need your support. Every gift – even $5 – makes an impact.
Your voice will have a tremendous impact. Please consider supporting our work with a tax-deductible donation using the form to the right. Thank you.
