80 Hours for 80 Million Lives
That's 80 million. 80 million living in Iran facing imminent and tragic consequences if U.S. sanctions are not immediately lifted. As a global pandemic takes thousands of lives, and countries around the world call on the US to lift sanctions that destroy any hope of Iran containing COVID-19, the Trump administration not only refused easing sanctions, but even added new sanctions on Iran just this week.

The World Health Organization (WHO) believes Iran's numbers -- nearly 41,000 confirmed cases and over 2700 dead -- are likely five times higher. Researchers predict that if sanctions aren't lifted, at least 3.5 million Iranian lives will be lost to COVID-19. Iran is unable to purchase or produce necessary life-saving supplies -- as simple as face masks -- under current U.S. sanctions.

We're making 80 hours of calls to OFAC on behalf of 80 million people. We can't flatten the GLOBAL curve unless we lift U.S. sanctions on Iran immediately. And we can't do it without your help.

Sign up to call the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and let them know that the U.S. needs to lift its deadly sanctions on Iran. Join us in fighting to #EndCOVIDSanctions and give Iranians what experts say is critical to stopping COVID-19: 120 days of sanctions relief. Or else, we will see a catastrophic loss of life on our hands.

While Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin insist that humanitarian aid is exempt from sanctions, this is only a language game. While this may be technically true, it could not be further from reality: financial sanctions ban financing any aid, and fear from retribution dissuades companies to try to do so. The US Treasury Department has already prosecuted a medical company for selling medical supplies to Iran in the past.

After Iran and the U.S. signed the historic 2015 Iran Deal, the U.S. was set to lift these sanctions in order to uphold the agreement, since Iran complied. Instead, Trump trashed the deal and only worsened sanctions, and with it, the immense toll they are taking on Iranians' lives.

Sanctions hurt everyday Iranians more than anything else. And especially in this moment, the urgency to lift sanctions has never been higher.
