Can't Do Nothing

There are far too many atrocities in this world, every day. It's overwhelming to face, and the helplessness good people feel can lead them to do nothing.

Not this time.

When Nazanin was 17, she and her niece were attacked in a park. Three men tried to rape them. She fought, and stabbed one of them. He died. Now she's been sentenced to death. If she'd done nothing and allowed the rape, she could have been imprisoned, flogged, or stoned for the act.

Go here to sign the online petition. It's easy. And it may help save a young woman's life.
