There are at least 24,000 people infected with COVID-19 in Iran and over 1,900 have already passed away – there’s good reason to think those numbers could be higher given the rate of the virus’ spread and the Iranian government’s tight censorship.
As a community that cares about progressive foreign policy, we must reach across borders to push for sanctions on Iran to be suspended for at least 120 days. Steve Mnuchin, as Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, has the authority to suspend devastating sanctions on Iran that are impeding Iranian people’s ability to respond in the face of the global coronavirus pandemic.
