Letter to The White House, House Representative and Senates:

May 21, 2024

Please email the White House, your representatives and senators and let them know that sending condolences to the oppressive regime of Islamic Republic who abuses human rights and does not value human’s lives was not a proper approach to the death of Ebrahim Raisi after all of the crimes he has committed.

I am writing to express my deep concern regarding the recent decision to send condolences for the death of Ebrahim Raisi to the Islamic Republic government. As you are aware throughout his time in various positions of power within the Iranian regime, Raisi was directly implicated in numerous cases of brutal murder and violence against protesters. His track record includes ordering security forces to use excessive force against peaceful demonstrators, resulting in tragic loss of life among the Iranian population. As a constituent and a firm believer in human rights and democracy, I find this action to be against the core values and vision of the United States.

It is crucial for our country to stand on the right side of history, just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did during his time. Dr. King fought tirelessly for equality, justice, and human rights, setting an example for generations to come. By sending condolences to a regime like that of Ebrahim Raisi’s, we are not upholding Dr. King’s legacy and the principles he stood for.

The United States has always been seen as a beacon of democracy and equality, inspiring people around the world to strive for a better future. However, by extending condolences to a government with a track record of human rights abuses and suppression of freedoms, we risk tarnishing our reputation as a champion of these values.

As an Iranian American citizen, I am deeply disappointed by this decision. It sends the wrong message not only to Iranian Americans but also to people globally who look up to the United States as a model of democracy and human rights.

I urge you to reconsider this action and take a stand in support of human rights and democracy. Let us honor Dr. King’s legacy by standing firm on the principles that make our nation great.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
