Congressman Kucinich Urges Obama to Suspend Sanctions

August 22nd, 2012

Last week, NIAC worked closely with Congressman Dennis Kucinich and 13 of his colleagues to advance a letter urging President Obama to suspend sanctions that prevent aid organizations from working in Iran and prevent Americans from sending charitable donations to earthquake victims -- a step that was taken in 2003 when an earthquake struck the Iranian city Bam. Yesterday (August 21), we have the extraordinary opportunity to talk with Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) after the Obama Administration announced a general license effectively suspending sanctions to allow humanitarian relief for 45 days.
