Stand up for human rights and make your voice heard.

NUFDI relies on the generosity of the Iranian-American community to fund its work in Washington, DC advocating for policies based on human rights and democracy. We receive no money from any government, so your support allows us to further our mission and make an impact in the nation’s capital.



We can make a difference in Washington

NUFDI is working to engage the Iranian-American community to advocate a US policy towards Iran that ensures American national security and supports the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people. We believe these two are inseparable and that on Iran, American interests and values are uniquely aligned.
