Social Movements in Iran: Lessons for Activism
Robert Asaadi |
• October 2020
What can we learn about how to act for change in our own communities by studying advocacy in other contexts? How do dominant narratives of other societies inhibit our ability to draw connections between those struggling to build more just, free societies across borders? Through the juxtaposition American perceptions of Iran against the reality of political struggle in Iran, Robert addresses these questions. The talk will highlight economic justice, environmental, and women's movements in Iran in the contemporary period and connect them to movements oriented around similar themes in the United States.
