President Obama is coming to American Pastor Saeed's hometown this week.
Sign our letter urging him to meet with Pastor Saeed's wife.
On Wednesday, January 21, you are scheduled to go to Boise, Idaho. Boise is Pastor Saeed Abedini’s hometown.
As you know, Pastor Saeed is an American citizen, imprisoned in Iran merely because of his Christian faith. You have publicly called for his release, and your State Department has engaged Iranian diplomats requesting that he be freed. For those actions, we are deeply grateful.
Yet he remains in prison, and there are public reports that the United States may reach a nuclear deal with Iran without securing the release of Americans held captive in that country.
When you are in Boise, we request that you take a few minutes from your schedule to meet with Pastor Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh, so that she may make a personal appeal for her husband. After enduring years of fear and uncertainty, she deserves to be heard.
